Fresh Connections, the 2009 New Music Indaba, highlights two of southern Africa's finest composers: We mark the centenary of celebrated choral and instrumental composer Michael Moerane and the sixtieth birthday year of internationally acclaimed composer Kevin Volans with The Chamber Choir of South Africa, directed by Michael Dingaan and instrumental concerts by Jill Richards, Waldo Alexander and The Chamber Music Company of London with guest singers Siyabonga Maqungo and Nombuso Ndlandla.

The 'Growing Composers' workshops continue this year and their focus will be the combination of voice and instruments. We will be working on a wide variety of pieces for soprano and/or tenor voice and piano trio by young and emerging composers.

Please check back with us soon by visiting this page over the next few weeks to learn of the latest news and concert details as we draw closer to the festival.

We hope to see you next month!
