The Christian Gregor School Of Music, a music school established in Schauderville, Port Elizabeth in 2015 has invited JOZI BRASS, a renowned brass quintet from Johannesburg to work with its pupils and members of the Salem Moravian Brass Ensemble over the weekend 8 to 10 April 2016. The weekend will culminate in a joint concert in which Jozi Brass will play with the Salem Moravian Brass Ensemble on 10 April 2016, 14:30 at NMMU South Campus Auditorium. The second half will consist of a programme played by Jozi Brass.
Jozi Brass is a quintet established in 2013 by the principal brass players of the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra. All the members are well established and highly skilled professional musicians.
Over the years Jozi Brass has performed at numerous high profile events and venues including the British High Commission, Classic FM Soirees and at The South African High Commission in Maputo, Mozambique. Educational and outreach concerts where music, particularly brass instruments, is introduced to young aspiring musicians is a large part of what this quintet does.
The members, collectively and individually have performed with numerous artists, both local and international including Josh Groban, Katherine Jenkins, Luciano Pavarotti, Natalie Cole, Shirley Bassey, Helmut Lotti, Richard Clayderman, Mango Groove, Bala Brothers, Mafikizolo, Bombshelter Beast and Hugh Masekela. They also perform regularly with all the major orchestras in South Africa.
The concert will include classical, sacred and jazz music.
Ticket can be purchased at the door for R50 adults and R30 scholars and students.
Concert goers are reminded of road closures in the Humewood and Summerstrand areas due to the Iron Man competition and the best route to the university would probably be along Strandfontein Road.
