MOZART SPECIAL PRIZE (article first published : 2006-02-1)

The 250th anniversary of the birth of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on January 27 will be commemorated with a special prize at the final rounds of the Vodacom-sponsored 5th Unisa International Voice Competition taking place on February 3 and 4.

The R5,000 prize is being provided by the Austrian Embassy and is to be presented for the best performance of an aria composed by Mozart at the competition.

“The fact that Mozart’s birthday occurs during the Competition is a wonderful opportunity to commemorate a culturally significant anniversary, while simultaneously awarding a prize for true artistry,” says Mthobi Tyamzashe, Executive Director – Corporate Affairs, Vodacom SA.

The Competition is currently underway in Pretoria. 32 young singers who have demonstrated outstanding talent from 16 countries around the world are competing in this prestigious event. (see previous articles)

Tickets for rounds 1, 2 and 3 are on sale at the door. Tickets R25 (R20 students and pensioners). Tickets for the Finals are available from Computicket. More information from the UNISA Music Foundation on 012 429 3344/3336 or e-mail musicomp@unisa.ac.za
