Linder Auditorium

Sunday 17 July 2022, 3pm

On 17th July, the Buskaid Soweto String Ensemble will perform once again at the Linder Auditorium where it will celebrate 25 years of extraordinary music-making on the Linder stage.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear this internationally acclaimed string ensemble perform the World Première of Scarlatti in Soweto, a quirky, jazzy piece by the renowned British USA-based composer, Julian Grant, written especially for Buskaid.

Also included in the programme is a suite of stunning music by the French baroque composer Lully. Buskaid’s brilliant young violinist Mzwandile Twala will be performing Dvorák’s magical Romance for Violin and Orchestra.

And finally, a bracket of pieces by Northern European composers: unashamedly romantic 19th and 20th century music, guaranteed to melt your hearts! A few new pop songs and a good helping of energetic Kwela will send you away smiling and dancing, whilst shaking off those winter blues!July 17th 2022 at the Linder Auditorium, Wits at 3pm
