On Tuesday 6 September 2016 at 19:30 two very different yet closely related musical idioms will share the stage of the Conservatory Hall: the Wind Ensemble conducted by André Oosthuizen, and the Big Band led by Justin Sasman.
For the 25th year, Potchpourri! opens the annual concert series at the Conservatory in Potchefstroom. Staff and students of the NWU School of Music, with the collaboration of a few guest artists, have compiled a varied and exciting programme which contains hummable melodies, toe-tapping rhythms, and a large helping of humour. There will be performances by the Bandura Express Marimba Ensemble; the Brass Quintet; the Potch Trio; a flute &.
Since 2011, the NWU School of Music has been presenting annual concerts featuring all the student ensemble groups at the Conservatory. Due to the number and size of these ensembles, this year’s performances will again be presented in three separate concerts on consecutive days. The first occasion is on the first day of Spring itself — Tuesday 1 September — at 19:30 in the Conservatory Hall with the Big Band,.
