Youth band is back

The Izivunguvungu MSC Youth Band is back in action after nearly two years of practising within the Covid-19 restrictions. A mixed group of beginners and mid-graders continued preparations to get the show on the road again during Youth Day activities at Kleinberg Primary School in Ocean View. The band previously performed annually in Cape Town, at the Knysna Festival, and twice at the International Music Show in Bremen, Germany. The project was started in 1996, by the navy, as part of a drive to occupy youth and get them away from gangs and other social ills. The combined band is preparing for public concerts and community events again, which will include the Heritage Day celebrations in September and Christmas concerts in Fish Hoek and Simon’s Town.
