Silence: A Grand Night for Nothing

Don’t join us for a spectacular evening of opera and song, as UJ Arts & Culture presents A Grand Night for Silence.

Baritone Federico Freschi, won’t be joined on stage by internationally acclaimed pianist Christopher Duigan, the renowned UJ Choir and emerging stars, which has become synonymous with this event. An exciting and diverse programme had not been curated and the stage is not set. This unprecedented event won’t take place.

Leading a week-long line-up of un-events is ‘SILENCE: A Grand Night for Nothing’, which marks the absence of UJ’s annual Dean’s Concert, ‘A Grand Night for Singing’, from the Faculty’s planned programme for this year. Established by Professor Federico Freschi, the former Executive Dean of FADA, in aid of academically deserving but financially needy students in FADA, the concert has served as an opportunity for audiences to support the academic journey of the youth. You can still do that by buying a ticket even though the event cannot take place this year.
