e’Bosch Schools Choir Festival 2018 biggest ever 
Preparations for the e’Bosch Schools Choir Festival 2018, the largest gathering of school learners ever from Stellenbosch and Franschhoek to sing together, are well under way. Some 1000 primary and secondary school learners from a total of 32 schools are already hard at work in preparation for their respective concerts in August and September this year.  

“It has been very rewarding to see the excitement of the learners at cluster rehearsals. Teachers and principals are giving this project their full support and commitment,” says Tarnia van Zitters, Project Manager for the e’Bosch Primary Schools Choir Festival.

“We will also celebrate the Nelson Mandela Centenary with a Song For Mandela, composed by Alun Francis. This work was written for Children’s Choir, Vocal Solo and Orchestra. The Stellenbosch University Symphonic Wind Ensemble, under direction of Pamela Kierman will accompany the mass choir with Terence Pietersen as soloist,” says Tarnia. 

This is the 7th consecutive year that this flagship event of the e’Bosch Heritage Project is presented which due to the large number of children involved, had to be split into primary and secondary school concerts. The 23 primary schools taking part are: AF Louw, Cloetesville, Devon Valley, Pieter Langeveld, Rietenbosch, St Idas, Dalabuhle, Groendal, West Eind, Wemmershoek, Bridge House, JJ Rhode,  St Vincent RC, Klapmuts, Joostenberg, Vlottenburg, Raithby, Weber Gedenk, Dorothea Special Needs, Nondzame, Pniel, PC Petersen and Simondium. 

The 9 secondary schools participating this year are: Calling Academy, Cloetesville Secondary School, Khayamandi High School, Kylemore Secondary School, Lückhoff Secondary School, Paul Roos Gymnasium, Rhenish Girls High, Stellenbosch High School and Stellenzicht Secondary School.

Con Serve Eisteddfod
The 2018 Con Serve Eisteddfod is hosted by Stellenbosch University and takes place at the Endler Hall of the Konservatorium on Saturday 25 August 2018, starting at 9h00. In light of such an exciting event, we would like to invite you to participate in what promises to be a fun-filled and wholesome musical day.

It is the vision of the Con Serve Eisteddfod that participation takes place across all ages and levels of musical proficiency. All types of musical items are encouraged, across a wide range of genres, whether solo performances, groups or ensembles. The Con Serve Eisteddfod is unique in that it tailors its categories according to entries received: in order to assure as many and versatile musical acts as possible, predetermined genre- and age-groups have been omitted. The goals of the Eisteddfod are simple, and have at its core the creation of a concert space in which participants across all communities are given the opportunity to perform music publicly. In line with such a vision, it does not cost anything to participate in this event.

Join us for a day that celebrates the captivating and communal power of music!
