South African National Youth Orchestra performs Strobe

As part of the Konservatorium Concert Series, the South African National Youth Orchestra (SA NYO) returns to the Cape after a long absence for a one-night-only, not-to-be-missed concert at the Endler Hall at the University of Stellenbosch, at 20:00 on Wednesday 9 December.

A scintillating programme of South African works by Mokale Koapeng (Isijabane, 2009), Robert Fokkens (Strobe, 1999)and Peter Klatzow (Peach Blossoms, 2005)  as well as the Russian masterpiece, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, will showcase the talent of the top youth orchestra in the country as they share their love for South African music with the audience.

The orchestra will be conducted by the young Swedish sensation, Fredrik Burstedt, who makes his debut in South Africa. As concertmaster and principal player, he has worked closely with renowned conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Gustavo Dudamel and Daniel Harding, and he brings vitality and energy to the podium.
