The annual ensemble concert at the NWU School of Music has been a regular fixture on the concert calendar for five years. This year’s performances have been divided between two concerts — the Autumn Ensemble Concert took place in May, and the Spring Ensemble Concert will now be presented on Tuesday 20 September 2016 at 19:30 in the Conservatory Hall.
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.

The local pianist and lecturer in piano at the NWU School of Music, Truida van der Walt, invited a dozen of her musical friends to perform with her in a concert of lighter fare with a touch of jazz. The concert will be presented in the Conservatory Hall on Tuesday 15 September 2015 at 19:30. The programme includes delightful music for easy listening by the tango master, Astor Piazzolla, selections.
