Stellenbosch International Chamber Music Festival 2018

Classical music lovers, the Stellenbosch International Chamber Music Festival is back from 1-15 July 2018 at Stellenbosch University. Heralded as the biggest event of its kind on the African, the festival focuses on classical orchestral performances and public classes led by acclaimed and award-winning local and global.

The Stellenbosch International Chamber Music Festival aims to provide talented young South African musicians with the opportunity to study, perform and be inspired by chamber music and orchestral playing at an internationally recognized and professional standard. This ten day long festival puts Stellenbosch University and South Africa on the international music calendar as an event of outstanding musicianship and as a nurturing ground for young talent. This festival facilitates the growth of young musicians and creates opportunities for them to further their music studies, thereby contributing significantly to South Africa’s rich and diverse cultural heritage.

Each year, a select number of top international and national institutions are invited to send representative student groups to attend the festival. A total of approximately 240 international and national participants  between the ages of 12 and 28 are divided into a number of chamber music groups. They are assigned repertoire on which they receive coaching from respected international and South African artists and chamber music experts that comprise the festival faculty. They are also given the opportunity to perform in a number of concerts. Tuition is offered in piano, strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion instruments. The festival features public master classes, a new interview/lecture series called “In Conversation with”, and student and faculty chamber music concerts culminating in concerts performed by the Festival Symphony and Festival Concert Orchestras, made up of the festival participants.

International participants who have attended the festival include representative student groups from the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst, Graz (Austria), the Hochschule für Musik und Theater (Zürich) and the University of California, Los Angeles (USA), the Universität Mozarteum, Salzburg (Austria), the University of North Texas (UNT) College of Music, Denton (USA) and the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM), Manchester (UK).

National student groups from tertiary music institutions are invited on a rotation basis. Previous participants have included groups from the University of Cape Town, University of Pretoria, University of the Free State and University of the Witwatersrand.
