JOYCE MOHOLOAGAE (article first published : 2001-07-21)

Joyce Moholoagae (30), currently completing a BA degree in Music at the University of Natal Durban and studies classical voice with Colleen Philp, recently won the Royal Over-Seas League/South Africa Scholarship. The London-based ROSL is a Commonwealth organisation founded in 1910 which aims to encourage links between people of different nations, one of the avenues being support for the arts.

The scholarship offers the recipient a four-week study visit to the UK in 2001 or 2002. The aim of the scholarship is to offer opportunities for outstanding young South African singers to experience the richness and diversity of professional musical life in the UK. It also assists those who may be considering post-graduate study in the UK.

There is a cash award of £500 sterling to cover personal expenses while in the UK and Joyce can look forward to two weeks in London, a week in Edinburgh and a week of study at Dartington International Summer School. She will also give a lunchtime recital in London at St Martin in the Fields or St James’s Piccadilly and an evening concert in London for the ROSL. In addition, she will receive tickets for a wide-ranging programme of musical events.

Joyce started singing at the age of seven and later joined the Devotional Songsters choir as a teenager, touring Zimbabwe, Jamaica and the US. In 1998, she won the Classical Performer’s Bursary. She has performed in many events including the Natal Youth Concerto, Last Night of the Proms and The SAA Summer Festival in Stellenbosch and was chosen to represent South African youth at the Hanover Expo 2000 in Germany. She has played various roles in opera scenes at the University of Natal and has appeared in the chorus of Porgy and Bess and Carmen (Pretoria State Theatre and SAA Summer Festival).

Other ROSL Arts Travel Scholarships 2001 for music are Joshua Bloom from Australia, Jane Kircher from New Zealand and Michèle Losier from Canada.
