St John’s D.S.G. pupil, Emma de Wet (Grade 12) and Mr Joshua Boudan (one of the St John’s D.S.G. Music teachers) will be performing with the KwaZulu-Natal Youth Wind Band at Carnegie Hall in New York next month.
The KZN Youth Wind Band will be the first African band to premiere a piece of music in Carnegie Hall. Mr Boudan says, “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I’m very proud of Emma, and I think it will be a fantastic experience for both of us, performing in one of the world’s most iconic venues steeped in musical history.”
