Peace Day Project
This year, we are back with our annual Peace Day Project! Throughout the term, we will cooperate with Rhodes University's Department for Music and Musicology and the Sonic Art Music to give our learners the best possible opportunities to write their own lyrics, record their own songs and to come up with a great performance.
So far, five schools are involved, namely Ntaba Maria, Archie Mbolekwa, C.M. Vellem, Good Shepherd and Grahamstown Adventist Primary. Our learners will have two classes per week, one for awarenet and one music class which will be organised by their awarenet coordinators and Zukani from Sonic Art Music.
In the beginning, we will work on our learner's musical education, divide them into groups (rappers, choir, etc.) and work with them on their lyrics.
Afterwards, the lessons will be more practical with singing lessons and the recording of the songs. All participants in the project will present their song during the Peace Day Concert on the 28st of September and a professional jury will vote for the best song, best rapper and best male/female singer.
