Stellenbosch International Chamber Music Festival 2016
Classical music lovers, the Stellenbosch International Chamber Music Festival is back from 1-10 July 2016 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 musicians.
The festival is a unique opportunity for appreciators to attend daily student and faculty concerts by renowned musicians. Furthermore, it grants talented young South African musicians the opportunity to study, perform and be inspired by chamber music and orchestral playing at an internationally recognized and professional standard.
The Stellenbosch International Chamber Music Festival is the first and only festival of its kind in South Africa to incorporate both chamber music and orchestral playing/tuition in a single festival.
Last year's event year saw a recorded number of performances by world-renowned musicians. New acts included the likes of French-American conductor Daniel Boico, American conductor Kazem Abdullah and local bassist Leon Bosch, while old favourites made their return, including Weston Sprott (trombone) and Billy Rae Hunter (trumpet)
2015 also featured public master classes that saw some of the finest soloists passing on their knowledge and expertise to budding enthusiasts, a series of workshops which was met with much enthusiasm. Celloist Adrian Brendel, flautist Paulo Barros and bassonist Rui Lopes held a string of sold-out classes.
Visitors were also privy to the documentary screenings of 'Behind The Music' throughout the festival.
