SA CHORAL MUSIC DATABASE (article first published : 2001-09-16)

Jean Sturm, the Executive Director of Musica International comes from France to facilitate the Musica International Workshop in South Africa which is to take place from October 1 to 6 at the UOFS Sasol computer lab in Bloemfontein, Free State.

Some 18 musicologists and choir leaders will work on the computers to submit the choral music of South Africa. Musica International is a project of the IFCM, the International Federation for Choral Music.

This is the first time a Musica International workshop is being held in Africa, with South African and African music to be submitted. The choral music of South African composers are being read into a database so that it can be available to the rest of the world! Data entry consists of a comprehensive bibliographic description and an analysis of each score, completed by other more subjective features such as appropriate keywords, level of difficulty for both conductor and choir to learn and perform, musical themes, etc.

Participation is by invitation. More details from Annemarie van der Walt or Huibrie Verster. Phone (051) 430-0040 or 082 785-2334, fax (051) 448-2003 or e-mail: sachoral@xsinet.co.za
