WOZA Moya and Embocraft are delighted to start their first piano evening with well-known pianist Count Filip Kormuth, the initiator of the event.

There will be classical music, supper and art exhibition at Woza Moya Embocraft on 25 April. The concert will raise funds for Embocraft and Woza Moya training programmes.

Speaking to the Fever about his music career, Ct. Filip Kormuth said he was born in Prague in 1981 to a Slovak family although having grown up in South Africa, he takes South Africa to be his home.

“After moving to South Africa in 1993, I recommenced formal training in music with an enrollment at the Natal University [2000] where I obtained my Masters in Piano Performance [2006].

“I was also a lecturer of piano, keyboard studies and music history until the end of 2012. Apart from my Master’s degree, I also hold the prestigious and internationally recognised Performance Licentiate from Unisa [2006]. I also hold the post of curriculum developer for the Unisa undergraduate courses in composition and music theory.”

Ct. Filip has been a concert pianist both in South Africa and abroad, boasting more than 100 performances, and also performing some of his own works.

He encouraged the community to support the Woza Moya fund-raiser.

Paula Thomson, Craft co-ordinator for Woza Moya said: “Join us for a relaxed cultural evening in Botha’s Hill. The supper is being prepared by chef Charmaine Corbett and, we are keeping it simple for our first evening, wholesome homemade butternut and minestrone soup, homemade breads and paté will be served, accompanied by a complimentary glass of wine or juice.

“Lazarus, a local metal artist, is setting up an exhibition of smaller recycled metal animals and birds in the Woza Gallery. This is going to be a wonderful evening, not to be missed,” she said.

Tickets are R100, including supper. For more information contact 031 765 5866.
