Under its director, wind band specialist Faan Malan, the wind ensemble has also performed in the Overberg and in various collaborations with schools and the SADF band. <br>        </p></div>GP0|#4884de34-c90a-473d-bef1-ae8e9eac095e;L0|#04884de34-c90a-473d-bef1-ae8e9eac095e|Ulundi Garage;GTSet|#77ffa18a-c716-4e28-9e0f-14946dccab8f021 4109982laurika@cpo.org.zawww.cpo.org.zahttps://www.facebook.com/CapeTownPhilharmonicYouthWindEnsemble/?fref=tsLaurika Steenkamp, Youth Development and Education Manager, Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra<img alt="" src="/sites/waterfrontcontent/PublishingImages/CPYWE%20380.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />GP0|#2a766a06-eb32-4636-bddd-4e0710fb1e80;L0|#02a766a06-eb32-4636-bddd-4e0710fb1e80|Music;GTSet|#75375da6-0815-46ce-a6c6-47b9173f8b31GP0|#613ee27b-c815-43c4-9df3-678e4ac410a2;L0|#0613ee27b-c815-43c4-9df3-678e4ac410a2|February;GTSet|#355f269d-aab9-44ed-8fa8-0a2190be40d801<img alt="" src="/sites/waterfrontcontent/PublishingImages/CPYWE%20LOGO%20FINAL%20265x180.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><div class="ExternalClass32D127682E164F61A35D0DC07AAE7B7D"><p>​N/A</p></div>19h00- 20h30FreeGP0|#c6f22d44-8701-47a5-9f5a-c24d01c32f34;L0|#0c6f22d44-8701-47a5-9f5a-c24d01c32f34|the-capetown-philaharmonic-youth-wind-ensemble-in-concert;GTSet|#8dbb8159-f73a-4db5-89b5-12dd3cd66408PierheadBoth the Cape Town Philharmonic Wind Ensemble (CPYWE) and the Junior Wind Ensemble (CPJWE) will give a concert at the V&A Waterfront on Saturday, February 27, from 19:00.
