The KZN Youth Wind Band will present two performances at the lush Durban Botanical Gardens tomorrow (October 31, 2021).

Performing for the first time in many months due to COVID-19 restrictions, this outstanding youth ensemble will play a challenging programme of light classics, popular pieces, and African works in a laid-back and informal setting. The programme is titled Summer Winds.

The KZN Youth Wind Band is one of the top Wind Orchestras in South Africa having performed extensively both locally and international, including on live Chinese television, and at the world-famous Carnegie Hall in New York City.

Audience members are encouraged to bring along a picnic and enjoy the wonderful surroundings and fantastic music by the likes of Holst, Williams, Whitacre, ABBA, The Beatles and Leroy Anderson to name a few.

These incredibly talented young musicians won’t disappoint.
