UJ Arts & Culture, a division of the Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture (FADA), Bruckner University and Anna Davel is proud present the popular South African songstress in concert with The Bruckner University Big Band on 18 February at the Art Centre (Kingsway Campus) at 13:00.
The Bruckner University Big Ban and Anna Davel is the first performance of the UJ Arts & Culture’s #ListenToYourHeART Music Concert Series. The lunchtime concert is offered free to all staff and students of the University of Johannesburg as well as the broader community.
The concert will be followed by a music workshop geared towards music students. Starting at 13:45. The workshop will allow each participating student a one on one opportunity with a member of the Bruckner University Big Band to learn a component of the song which they will then perform together. We encourage music schools around Johannesburg to book their spot for this workshop.
The Bruckner University Big Band was founded in 2016 as part of the music programme of the Jazz Department at the Bruckner University in Linz, Austria. This international collaboration between the University of Johannesburg and the Bruckner University Big Band is part of the Bruckner University Big Band’s 2019 South African tour Good Vibes.
“Now more than ever, we all need to understand and respect one another’s cultures in order to promote peace and harmony on our planet,” says Bruckner University Big Band director Christian Radovan.
“I believe the inspiring and uplifting melodies played by these wonderful young musicians engender feelings of unity, goodwill and joy,” he adds.
The concert is free to all staff and students of the University of Johannesburg as well as the broader community. Music schools and students should contact Lakin Morgan-Baatjies to book a space for the workshop.
