Other highlights included performances by St Andrew’s College and DSG pupils: Tim Simpson’s bright and breezy performance of Melody No.6by Alex Ridout on his Piccolo and Sascha van der Merwe’s excellent performance of the demanding Etude Allegroby Nakada.

There were three love songs performed (Nicole Ruwodo, Elliot Apps and Alex Duckworth) before the SAC/DSG Jazz Band turned up the heat with sizzling renditions of Killer Joeand Memphis Underground.The winner of the lucky draw hamper was a delighted Alicia Muzanga.
