SASOL NATIONAL YOUTH WIND ENSEMBLE (article first published : 2005-06-6)

Some 18 young musicians from Durban and Pietermaritzburg will appear in one of the four ensembles taking part in a concert on July 15 in Johannesburg and in Bloemfontein on July 16.

There’s a new musical event on this year’s calendar. This features the debut concerts of the spanking new Sasol National Youth Wind Ensemble which joins the traditional Sasol National Youth Symphony Orchestra as the place where South Africa’s best young classical musicians are seen at the end of the annual orchestral music course.

Conducted by Conrad van Alphen, the NYSO will perform the Symphony No 3 by Brahms; Uhambo Olunintsi (Journeys) - a work commissioned by SAMRO of the young South African composer Robert Fokkens, and the Trumpet Concerto by Alexander Grigori Arutunian featuring leading South African trumpeter Paul Loeb van Zuilenburg, on July 15.

The NYWE, conducted by Sean Kierman, will take to the stage with a programme likely to include the Bloemfontein Overture by Allan Stephenson, Drie Hollandse Volkswysies by Arnold van Wyk (arr Christoff. Spies, former principal trombone of the NYSO) and the Symphony for Winds by Derek Bourgeios.

KZN musicians feature strongly. From Durban, violinists include Sarah Pudifin, Gillian Bradtke, Siphindile Ndlovu and Camilla du Toit with cellist Daisy Pharoah. In the woodwind sections there will be Mark Swaine (clarinet) with Bongani Ndlovu (bass clarinet) and Heidi Rothman (flute). The brass sections will feature trumpeters Sibusiso Khoza and Bulelani Madondo with Phoka Moruri (tuba); Brent Black and Terri Ireland (alto sax) and Michael Matthee (trombone).

Pietermaritzburg musicians include violinist Adriaan Heintz with percussionists Sammy Mabombo and Arien Zeeman.

The concerts will be at the Etienne Roussouw Theatre in Sasolburg on July 15 at 20h00 and on July 16 at the Sand du Plessis in Bloemfontein at 18h00. Book at Computicket and, if available, tickets at the door. More details from 083 272 2117.
