A few months ago, Maestro Marcus Hartmann asked for help
in finding a performance score for Fela Sowande's African
Suite. He writes from Germany:
Dear Mr. Zick, Hello, do you remember? I am the conductor who wanted to play
the African Suite from Fela Sowande!!
Now I want to inform you, that the concert is Sunday 23.12.2012
at 17.00 hours in the afternoon at Schwörsaal Ravensburg,
I send you the program (in German!!). Perhaps you know
somebody in the South of Germany, who is interested to come to
the concert - please let me know.
Thank you for your help to organize the score. Greetings from Germany Marcus Hartmann
