SA National Youth Orchestra – Warm Your Heart

The National Youth Orchestra will be performing in Potchefstroom on 2 July and Johannesburg on 3 July – don’t miss these wonderful concerts!

In the heart of the winter, the National Youth Orchestra will be hosting their Winter Course from 27 June – 2 July in Potchefstroom. The musicians will be performing under South African conductor Matheu Kieswetter, and Norwegian conductor, Bjørn Breistein.

The two orchestras (string ensemble and wind orchestra) consist of 85 young musicians from all over South Africa. The aim of this course is for these young musicians to meet each other and learn about diverse cultures, develop as young professionals (with access to national and international networks that the youth orchestra provides) and discover the pure joy of orchestral music.

This course is proudly sponsored by the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, Artéma, the SAMRO Foundation and North West University. One of the orchestra members will also have the opportunity of receiving a “Pukki” bursary from the university to the value of R20,000.

The course will be concluded with two Warm Your Heart concerts at the Snowflake in Potchefstroom on 2 July, and at The Orbit in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, on 3 July. Tickets for these events are available on the National Youth Orchestra’s website: www.sanyo.org.za/events. The National Youth Orchestra invites music enthusiasts to come and experience the exceptional talent South Africa has to offer in these exhilarating performances with exquisite music including Finlandia by Sibelius in celebration of his 150th anniversary, and a SAMRO-commissioned piece by star South African composer Andile Khumalo.
