THE much-anticipated biennial Kuesta University Choral Festival is being hosted by Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) on September 11 and 12.

This promises to be a note- worthy weekend with world-class performances by four South African University choirs - the University of Johannesburg Choir, TUKS Camerata Choir, Stellenbosch University Choir and the NMMU Choir.

The weekend will consist of three concerts. The first will take place on 11 September in NMMU’s South Campus Auditorium at 1pm. Tickets are R60 for adults and R30 for students and pensioners.

The second concert also takes place on 11 September at the Summerstrand Dutch Reformed Church, starting at 6pm, with tickets at R60 for adults and R30 for students and pensioners.

The gala concert will be held at the Feather Market Centre on September 12 at 4pm. Tickets are R85 for adults and R45 for students and pensioners.

As part of the festivities, a choral conducting workshop will be held on September 12 with the highly acclaimed conductors from each of the four choirs - Renette Bouwer (UJ-Choir), Michael Barret (TUKS Camerata Choir), André van der Merwe (Stellenbosch Choir) and Junita Lamprecht-van Dijk (NMMU-Choir).

A special guest from America, Prof Joey Martin (Choral director of the Texas State Chorale), will round off the morning workshop.

Tickets are available through Computicket, or alternately contact Mabel van Vliet at 041 504 3339, or mabel.vanvliet@nmmu.ac.za.
