Zelia le Roux runs a very active music department. Learners have an opportunity to join the junior and senior choirs or study a musical instrument.
Curro Mossel Bay has junior and senior marimba bands. These learners literally make the feet tap with their quirky numbers and they play at many events in and out of town.
In the meantime, the senior marimba band has gone from strength to strength. They have been invited to openings and gala evenings galore. They are not only the sound of our school but also of our beautiful town. Curro Mossel Bay learners have had the opportunity to attend a workshop with the band Irie Vibe from NMMU. This amazing group performed with our marimba bands at the Barnyard Theatre, where they gave the audience goose bumps with their beautiful sound.
Curro Mossel Bay’s music academy also instructs learners in acoustic and electric guitar, drums, violin and various other classical ensemble instruments. Curro Mossel Bay learners excel in the Unisa exams for music and at the various eisteddfods held in the area.
