Marimbas at Kloof Community Market!

The pictures tell it all!
All smiles!

HCA Band in full swing!

Early morning visitors to the market.

Marimba is about fun, fun, FUN!

Warming up before playing
We spent a lovely morning entertaining the folk who came to support the Kloof Community Market held at St Agnes Church this morning.  With the help of (strong!) parents, we loaded our marimbas into a huge trailer owned by one of the parents and set off for Kloof.  We played on the verandah of the beautiful new Church building, facing the original stone church which the congregation has outgrown. Wow!  Did we have fun!  It is so great to watch the children in action - They have worked extremely hard learning an extensive new repertoire this year, and they are now just loving sharing what they have learned with most enthusiatic and appreciative audiences which we are blessed with! Next on the agenda is our upcoming Marimba "Play it Forward" Camp, where the outgoing grade 7 members pass on their skills to the new members.  A few tears were shed today as many realise that this will be on of our last performances together as team 2011...
