Roll Call: Silverstars Christmas Band

Programme Notes: CTMT 2013

“The young musicians of the Silverstars Christmas Band are all learners from primary and secondary schools in and around Elsies River, a suburb of Cape Town. They are all deeply committed to their music making.

The Silverstars Christmas Band is a public initiative in a community disrupted by gangsterism and drugs. Since their inception in 2011, they have gone from strength to strength. They have appeared at the Artscape Theatre in Cape Town as well as on SABC and CTV. The band members rely primarily  on funding from their performances. Tonight they will present a medley of traditional Christmas Band music.” (CTMT 2013)
