Concert hits the high notes

03 December 2018 | Education

Flute ensembles and wind classes, drummers, singers, orchestral musicians – the learners of Deutsche Höhere Privatschule (DHPS) had the chance to present their talent during their school concert last week.

The programme could not have been more varied: The flute ensemble with learners from grade 1 presented classical and light-hearted songs as well as Christmas carols, while grade 5 and 6 students of the brass class – inspired by pop, blues and boogie – and the drum group, spoiled the audience with Christmas rhythms.

Highlights included a performance of the DHPS orchestra and the final song “My Namibia, My Country, My Pride”, composed by Klaus Rennack and DHPS teacher Helga Falk, and jointly and ­enthusiastically performed by all learners, music groups and the audience.

For some the event was a little sentimental, especially since it was also the final concert of Mr Gramann, the current head of the school's music department, who bids farewell to Namibia and the DHPS at the end of the year.
