The Open Day for the Potchefstroom Campus of North-West University will take place on Saturday 7 May 2016 from 07:45. The School of Music will also be putting their best foot forward and will gladly welcome prospective music students on that day to speak with them about music study at the NWU.

The School of Music will be present on the main campus between the Joon van Rooy (F1) and Frans du Toit (E9) buildings, next to the flag posts. Staff members will be available to provide information and answer questions about the different study programmes and activities at the School of Music. Several ensembles of the School of Music, including the wind ensemble, marimba ensemble and a number of jazz ensembles, will also perform during the morning.

NWU School of Music & Conservatory

The Conservatory in Thabo Mbeki Drive, three blocks east of the main campus next to the Fanie du Toit Sports Grounds, will be open from 11:00-13:00 and special tours will be offered every 30 minutes. Visitors will be able to see the teaching facilities, including the different concert venues, lecture halls, practice facilities and the music library. Different ensembles will also be busy with rehearsals at that time.

This Open Day is also an opportunity for candidates who are ready to do an audition for admission to music study in 2017. An application for selection can be submitted online. The application form can also be downloaded at the School of Music website or requested from tel. (018) 299-1692 / e-mail. Only candidates who have applied will be allowed to audition. It will unfortunately not be possible to accommodate walk-ins.

A documentary video about the Open Day of a few years ago is available at the School of Music’s YouTube channel and provides a good view of what visitors can expect at the Open Day.
