Christmas Celebration as 1700 turn out to hear 330 Academy Students ..

More than 1700 people brought candles to the Amphitheatre in Bulawayo’s Centenary Park on Tuesday night to join over 330 Zimbabwe Academy of Music students celebrating Christmas. The students, drawn from schools across Bulawayo, sang carols, their own arrangements of Christmas music old and new, and staged a musical Nativity play. The majority of the performers were participants in the Bulawayo Schools Music Project, which is funded by the British Council and supporters of BZAM – British Friend’s of the Zimbabwe Academy of Music.

Members of the Bulawayo Salvation Army Band, Academy Brass, and the Marimba ensemble Rainbow Blaze joined in the spectacular evening, BSMP’s biggest community project yet.
