The NMMU Department of Music presents a Voice Studio Lunch Hour Concert on 7 September with the combined studios of both Lionel van Zyl and newly appointed voice lecturer, Njabula Mthimkhulu’s students at 13h00 in the NMMU South Campus Auditorium.
The performance will feature a variety of voice students in a programme consisting mainly of evergreen ensembles from both operas and musicals.
Students performing at this event, include an interesting new voice from Nigeria, the 25 year old Olusegun Soyemi – only the 2nd counter tenor in 25 years at the Music Department. Liske Potgieter will sing the famous coloratura aria- Ou va la jeune Indoue, better known as The Bell Song from Deliebs’ opera Lakmé. Also some Mozart ensembles: from Zauberflöte and the always copular Lá ci darem from Don Giovanni.
Two noteworthy works to be performed are the beautiful quartet from Beethoven’s Fedelio : Mir ist so wunderbar and the tuneful ensemble Brüderlein und Schwesterlein from Die Fledermaus by Johann Strauss (jnr)
On a more entertaining note from South Pacific , a female ensemble will Wash that man right outta my hair- while the male ensemble will lament Nothin’ like a dame from Showboat! A definite audience hit will be the robust baritone aria: Oh Lord, I’m on my way from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess.
Entrance to the Department of Music’s lunch hour concerts are free. For more information, contact Nicky Bosman on 041 504 4235.
