2008-10-19 00:00

The UKZN School of Music hosts the annual Festival of Music from today until Saturday at Howard College Theatre and the Centre for Jazz and Popular Music, UKZN in Durban.

The festival provides an excellent performance opportunity for young performers from KZN.

Students from various programmes within the School of Music will showcase their talents, with different musical styles being highlighted each night.

The festival starts with a free lunch-hour concert at 12.15 pm today, featuring Azanah — a graduate of the School of Music’s African music and dance programme. Azanah and her band will perform an eclectic array of traditional and modern compositions influenced by umakhweyana bow, house music and Afro-Jazz, in the Howard College Theatre.

Friday, October 24 is the Quinto Festival dell’Opera — an Italian Opera evening, hosted by the Italian consulate where Ambassador Enzo Menzione is the guest of honour. Scenes from Mozart, Donizetti and Verdi and an Italian arias competition open to all first level students are included in the programme. For details and to book, phone 031 260 3353.
