UKZN SCHOOL OF MUSIC CONCERTS (article first published : 2007-08-6)

Free lunch-hour concerts are presented regularly by the UKZN School of Music during semesters in Howard College Theatre from 12h00 to 13h00.

August 6: BULELANI MADIKIZELA. Final-year Voice student Bulelani Madikizela is one of only two candidates from South Africa who was selected to participate in the biennial Queen Sonja International Voice Competition in Oslo. Before he leaves, Bulelani will treat Durban opera lovers to a preview of his prepared repertoire which will include music by Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Rossini, Verdi and Offenbach.

August 13: SWEDISH-SOUTH AFRICAN SESSION. The programme features Swedish traditional songs and lilting tunes with some arrangements featuring Ulrika Gunnarson from the Folk Music Department at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm collaborating with African Music and Dance students from the UKZN School of Music.

August 15: SWEDISH EXCHANGE STUDENTS: JAZZ CONCERT. Jazz students from the University of Gothenburg in Sweden present a programme of Jazz standards.

August 20: GUY BUTTERY. Carving a big name for himself performing around South Africa and internationally for several years, Guy Buttery has received three separate nominations at the South African Music Awards, as well as being the youngest nominee in the history of the event. Guy's stirring live performances are renowned and consist of his idiosyncratic fingerstyle acoustic guitar pieces and sitar improvisations which delve into many genres including folk, maskanda, Celtic and world-music.

August 27: NEIL GONSALVES. Jazz pianist Neil Gonsalves will collaborate with musicians from Gothenburg, Sweden. This concert coincides with the release of Neil's new CD entitled North Facing - a collection of original compositions recorded in Sweden in September 2006 - an interesting blend of mbaqanga, church music, jazz improvisation, Nordic Cool and whatever else you hear in it!
