Congratulations are in order for the record breaking Hillcrest College Marimba band. On Saturday, 24th September the boys put up a spirited performance at the Tambarimba national marimba competition in Harare. The event featured 25 High schools, 10 primary schools and 5 open bands.
The marimba boys were placed 3rd overall after finishing third in both the traditional and contemporary categories. For their efforts, the boys received three trophies, Tambarimba bags, a podium, movie tickets and a mobile phone for the teacher in charge.
The boys also qualified to represent Zimbabwe at next year’s International Marimba Festival in South Africa.
