The final rehearsal of the full ensemble for Opera in a Convent Garden, which also had visitors from IkamvaYouth SA, hosted by the girls of Springfield Convent School. A great opportunity for the young people to see a professional rehearsal in full operation – stops and starts and all – a chance to make new friends, great expereince for the Springfield Schoolgirls, and an audience, to up the pressure of our final rehearsal a few notches.

Thanks to Melanie Bruce, Pat Danford, Golden Arrow Busses and Dr Marion Walton for making possible this valuable addition to our event. A special thank you to Zukile Keswa and Liesel Bakker from the Ikamva Youth Makhaza Branch Tutor Group. It was a success, and in time this relationship can grow in strength.
