Mokale Koapeng is a prominent South African composer and choral director who sends us news periodically. These excerpts are from his latest message:

“I have just come back from a three week visit to Finland, where I conducted workshops on South African music and had two performances. Some of my compositions were performed there.

“I was the 2010 composer-in-residence of the IHLOMBE! South African Choral Festival. A performance of the world premiere of my composition 'Letlang Bana: Let the Children Decide' was at the historic Regina Mundi, in Soweto, July.”
