Each week’s concert lasts for approximately 50 minutes and are overseen and introduced by Reginald Masemola, a UP law student and member of UP’s Ovuwa group for five years. This year’s stage has already been filled by the likes of the UP symphony orchestra, multiple performances from the UP music and drama departments and, of course, the Tuks Camerata, who brought a filled hall to their feet in applause last quarter.
Performances resumed this semester on 23 July with a piano quartet by Prof. Wessel van Wyk. A full schedule is available on the UP Arts website and will see the return of some well-known favourites as well as some first-time performers. The concerts are free to attend and are a pleasant change from the usual lunch time coffee run. The experience is sure to leave you a little more cultured and far more aware of the talent that is present at our university.
