Join us from 10am on Sunday 18 December 2022 at the CBD’s favourite park and one-and-only band stand. Bring your friends, family, dogs and selves (no drinks) and let’s come together in De Waal Park with live music and safe and serene surroundings.

CONCERTS IN THE PARK rocks Cape Town’s live music scene, showcasing world-class local talent in the Mother City’s historical park – for everyone!

It’s about coming together – nation building – around community, around music, around nature

In the competition of the local high school bands, the Camps Bay High band will also be performing.


FRANCOIS VAN COKE rose to fame as the iconic front man of legendary South African rock bands Fokofpolisiekar and Van Coke Kartel. On the 8th of April 2015, Francois launched his self-titled debut solo album and kicked his solo career into gear with the release of the most poignant ballad of that year – Toe Vind Ek Jou featuring Karen Zoid.


TASCHÉ is, without a doubt, a world-class talent. Her charismatic stage presence and powerful renditions of local and international hits bagged her The Voice SA 3 crown in 2019. She became the first female winner of this reality TV series just after her 19th birthday; making her the youngest winner of The Voice SA as well. With her original music, Tasché is busy carving out her own space as the new generation Afrikaans rocker.

The Learning Initiative was established in 2014, with the aim of making professional services available to children from disadvantaged communities to ensure that they can reach their potential in school and beyond. Research has repeatedly shown that early identification and intervention is crucial for optimal functioning and self-actualisation. In 2016 TLI partnered with the Western Cape Department of Social Development to develop, test and implement a ground-breaking, therapeutic intervention that promotes holistic child development in 4-5 year old children. The founder and Director is Dr Ingrid Ahlert a Counselling Psychologist with 15 years experience both in private practice and in the public sector. She has worked with multi-disciplinary teams at various schools, focusing on enhancing the resilience of children with learning barriers.

The Learning Initiative aims to:

  • identify young children who are at risk of developmental delays and potential barriers to learning through professional screening and assessment
  • provide trans-disciplinary interventions that promote holistic child development and focus on addressing barriers to learning
  • encourage active parent, practitioner and community involvement in the stimulation and education of young children
  • build capacity within the school, family and community through training, support and resources
  • advocate for the importance of quality ECD programmes in South Africa.

Help us to help The Learning Initiative help more children who face barriers to learning. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram or contact us today on 021- 3001464.
