The NMMU Department of Music will present its second free lunch hour concert this month, featuring students from the studios of Pierre Malan (violin/viola) and Annamarie Serrao (cello), on 19 August 2015, 13:00 at the NMMU South Campus Auditorium.
Students from first year to master’s level will be performing solo and ensemble works.
Robyn Lovemore, first year BMus student has had an incredible year thus far as she was one of two NMMU students who were invited to the UK in June to participate in the HESSE Student Scheme. Hesse Students are called upon to assist in the day-to-day running of the Festival, with typical duties including programme selling, page turning, invigilating exhibitions, helping with office duties, assisting with Festival Walks and beach events. Robyn was also afforded the opportunity to perform with all the rest of the HESSE students at the end of the festival.
HRH Princess Margaret of Hesse and the Rhine was a stalwart supporter of the arts and an enthusiastic President of Aldeburgh Music from 1986-1997. Together with her husband, she established the unique Hesse Student Scheme in 1959. The purpose of the Scheme was to enable young people between the ages of 18-27 with a love of music the opportunity to attend the Aldeburgh Festival at no cost.
Robyn will be playing Meditation by French composer Jules Massanet.
Other performances include the NMMU Strings which will be performing Corelli’s Concerto Grosso No 4 in D Major and Bach’s Agnus Dei from the B Minor Mass, Nick Fidler, Evan Perkins and Olusegun Soyemi .
Entrance to the concert is free.
