All-Star BandAt the end of 2021, the Director of Music Education visited all of our partner outreaches to observe the highest of talent among each programme; 31 beneficiaries (12 girls and 19 boys) auditioned and were selected to become members of the brand new All-Star Band. Once a month, every month, this group spends a weekend at the Brass for Africa Centre in Kampala to play together, learn new pieces, and ultimately train as a high-level group with the intention of representing our beneficiaries at various events.
The All-Star Band has been created to give the young musicians within our programmes an extra opportunity to develop their musical talent and meet different Brass for Africa participants from all over Kampala and Kalangala. The band provides an incentivising opportunity for all beneficiaries to aspire to. Not only does it allow those selected to achieve a higher level of musical standard but they are also be able to take this increased knowledge and ability back to their bands and help their contemporaries achieve higher standards too.
