On Tuesday evening, St John’s D.S.G. hosted their second annual event Noted!, a concert celebrating the exceptional talents of the staff in our Music Department. A total of nine Music teachers, as well as invited Music students from the Junior and Senior Schools, performed and showcased their musical abilities with a variety of instruments, as well as a range of musical styles. The event also featured guest performances by Michael Tonkin and his wife, Ines De Carvalho-Tonkin. Ms Carika de Swardt says, “As a Music Department, we feel that it is so important for us to continue in our own talents and performing skills, so that we can not only teach best practice, but demonstrate it to our Music girls too. This was the purpose of Noted!” Ms de Swardt would like to extend a huge “thank you” to everyone who attended the evening. “The positive response from staff, parents and especially our Music girls was overwhelming,” she said.
