South African National Youth Orchestra: 'Isijabane' of Mokale Koapeng at Stellenbosch Dec. 9

[Mokale Koapeng]

Sophia Welz of writes to us:
“Dear Bill, The SA National Youth Orchestra will perform a fantastic concert in December in Stellenbosch. We've included a South African selection for the first half: 'Isijabane' by Mokale Koapeng, 'Strobe' by Robert Fokkens and 'Peach Blossoms' by Peter Klatzow. We're very excited about the inclusion of more South African repertoire to our list.”
“As part of the Konservatorium Concert Series, the South African National Youth Orchestra (SA NYO) returns to the Cape after a long absence for a one-night-only, not-to-be-missed concert at the Endler Hall at the University of Stellenbosch, at 20:00 on Wednesday 9 December. A scintillating programme of South African works by Mokale Koapeng, Robert Fokkens and Peter Klatzow, as well as the Russian masterpiece, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, will showcase the talent of the top youth orchestra in the country as they share their love for South African music with the audience. The orchestra will be conducted by the young Swedish sensation, Fredrik Burstedt, who makes his debut in South Africa.”
