A Joyful Sound — an inspiring music outreach documentary
The former Director of the NWU School of Music, Prof Karendra Devroop, established a wind ensemble at Die Wilge High School in Potchefstroom in 2012 as part of his South African Music Outreach Project. A beautiful and inspiring documentary of this initiative was filmed in part at the Conservatory and features many current music students and also alumni. Corné Scheepers of Match Frame Media filmed and produced this documentary, which is now available online.
For the fifth year running, the School of Music is still involved in music teaching at Die Wilge as part of its community service, with Mr George Fazakas as coordinator.
