Your COVID beleaguered association’s committee is still in existence and wishes all members and friends of the association a better 2021 than 2020 turned out to be. Regrettably the start to this new year has not been exactly stellar with regard to the second wave of COVID which has hit the country. Two of your committee went down with this curse but, fortunately, both have come through the ordeal. We hope they go from strength to strength with their recovery.
It had been the committee’s intention to hold our first get together this month with a talk by Elsa Marais on The History of Music in Swellendam from 1743 to 1795. Elsa wrote a wonderfully informative thesis on the subject for her Masters degree in Music at the University of Stellenbosch in 1989 and was a teacher of music for many years in Swellendam as well as contributing liberally to the music life of Swellendam in general. BUT, sadly like our year end function, this event will not happen (yet).
