Young performers will have their time to shine as the KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra performs with some of the country’s most promising musicians during the National Youth Concerto Festival, in Durban’s City Hall on 29 September.
Eight budding young classically-trained musicians will have the privilege of performing with the KZN Philharmonic: Keamagetswe Magau (violin); Mieke Struwig (clarinet); Tabiso Busani (solo classical voice); Yohan Chun (piano); Lourens Fick (piano); Christiaan van Zyl (cello); Rian Smit (flute) and Kevin Kim (piano). They perform under the baton of Lykele Temmingh
The National Youth Concerto Festival has been a tradition in South Africa for over 40 years. Founded by David Tidboald in 1971 in Cape Town and brought to Durban in 1983 as part of the inaugural year of the Natal Philharmonic Orchestra, the concert has provided an annual stage for South Africa’s emerging musical talent. South African international classical music stars such as Ben Schoeman, Anton Nel and François du Toit all received their first taste of performing in front of an orchestra through the National Youth Concerto Festival.
2016 will feature a diverse selection of soloists performing repertoire from Mozart to Ravel to Liebermann. These young musicians worked through a rigorous audition process in order to share the stage with the musicians of the KZN Philharmonic on this special evening.
The KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra continues its primary mission of bringing excellence in music-making to the city of Durban. The Winter Season features top South African and international musicians in an eclectic and carefully created programme of amazing music. “We are committed to bringing the highest quality concerts to Durban thereby enriching the city and province through music,” says Tembe.
Join us on 29 September and hear the stars of tomorrow today!
