UND MUSIC (article first published : 2002-06-10)

There are no lunch-hour concerts presented by the University of Natalís Music School in June as students are involved in examinations. However, there are several interesting evening events.

On June 20 at 19h30 in Howard College Theatre, the UND School of Music presents a free concert with Natalie Rungan (Voice). This will be part of her final examination recital (jazz) for her Mmus degree.

The Centre for Jazz & Popular Music will host a free concert on June 21 at 19h30. Saxophonist Bernard Ayisa will present his final examination recital (jazz) for his Mmus degree.

Highlight of the month will undoubtedly be a performance on June 14 at 19h30 when the UND School of Music will host the Yale Glee Club (Yale University Chorus).

The Yale Glee Club celebrates its 140th anniversary season with a month-long concert tour in Africa. The 75-voice chorus has been received with enthusiasm by audiences around the world but this is their first African tour. The Yale Glee Club was founded in 1861 by 13 male students who gathered to sing folk songs accompanied by banjos and guitars. Later, serious modern and classical music were added to the repertoire and the Yale Glee Club soon became synonymous with male chorus singing at its finest. Today, the Yale Glee Club has evolved into a 75-voice chorus of men and women.

The Yale Glee Club has sung in every principal city in the United States and frequent summer tours have taken the Glee Club to Europe, Latin America and Asia. The African tour will include the world premiere performance of newly commissioned works to celebrate the 140th Anniversary of the Yale Glee Club.

The concert will take place in Howard College Theatre. Tickets R25 at the door (R15 students/scholars/pensioners). More details from Debbie Mari on 031 260-3353.
