New Music Indaba 2015

  • 21 – 26 July
  • Odeion School of Music, UFS, Bloemfontein

The New Music Indaba this year will continue the tradition of introducing new works by a diverse range of composers to life on stage with the help of the South African New Music Ensemble (SANME) under the direction of Robert Fokkens, the Odeion School of Music Camerata (OSCM) under the direction of Xavier Cloete, the Choir of Christ Church Arcadia under the direction of George King and the Odeion Vocal Consort under the direction of Lance Phillip. It will also feature works by leading figures such as Robert Fokkens, Kevin Volans and Hendrik Hofmeyr, to name but a few. At the same time there will be an exciting range of workshops and lectures offered, as well as a roundtable discussion of the current state of new music in South Africa.

The event will feature a wide range of workshops, talks and roundtables, and will conclude with a choral mass at the Bloemfontein Anglican Cathedral featuring an "Agnus Dei" written by George T. King.
