2019-04-03 06:01

THE Nelson Mandela University (NMU) Symphony Orchestra will be hosting the first Symphonic Showcase of the year at the NMU South Campus Auditorium on Sunday, April 14.

They are excited to be collaborating with Collegiate Girls’ High School and Pearson High School.

The concert will treat audiences to a wonderful afternoon of music and showcase the talents of music students in the schooling and tertiary system.

The first half of the concert will see Paulo Putigna with the Collegiate Girls’ High School Concert Band and Tania Leurquain-Steyn with the Pearson High School Concert Band, entertain audiences with a fantastic array of music while showing the high standard of instrumental music locally.

The second half will see the NMU Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Grant Snyman, performing well-known works by Franz Schubert and George Gershwin, as well as a South African composition by Grant McLachlan.

Opera aficionados can look forward to Charles Gounod’s Ariette No.3, Je Veux Vivre from his opera, Romeo and Juliet, sung by NMU alumna, Liske Hemingway.

Conductor Snyman explained, “The concert is aimed at encouraging high school students to not only study and pursue music as a career, but to remain in Port Elizabeth and to enjoy the facilities and opportunities available at the university.”

Tickets can be purchased for R60 per adult and R40 per pensioner, learner and student from the South Campus Music Department or at the door on the day of the concert.

For more information contact Nicky Bosman on 041 504 4235.

The Symphonic Showcase show will start at 15:00.
