Paul Roos Gymnasium is a public, dual medium (Afrikaans & English) high school for boys in the lovely town of Stellenbosch. It is the 12th oldest school in the country and offers a wide range of sport and culture related activities. The PRG orchestra forms the core of Paul Roos’s ambitious musical productions, including collaborations with artists such as Matthew Mole, Coenie de Villiers, Amanda Strydom, Die Heuwels Fantasties, Spoegwolf and Koos Kombuis. The PRG orchestra regularly enters local Eisteddfods and competitions, and participates in festivals such as the Windworx Fanfare, and performs at mass events like this year’s Comic Con Cape Town! The orchestra toured Europe in 2018.
This year’s orchestra consists of about 50 learners with instruments of every kind. Our learners love to play a variety of genres such as film music, pop songs, classical items and even on occasion some rock. For our show at this year’s Comic Con Cape Town we will be performing a range of pop art works including Lord of the Rings, Amine themes and some Avengers theme songs.
