Keeping arts alive for future generations, the Hilton Arts Festival (taking place at Hilton College from 15 - 17 September) is working proactively to introduce young people to the wondrous all-encompassing world of live performance and to this end is offering a Jongosi / youth component as part of the main festival, and is looking for youthful performers to participate in the festival itself.
This year, the festival invites schools to participate in the eighth Jongosi Festival. Save the date if you would like your drama, music or dance classes to experience the best of live performances on offer in the country. The Jongosi Festival embedded in the main festival, takes place on Friday 15 September, and has a specifically, carefully-selected age-appropriate programme aimed at Grades 6 - 10. The full programme will be released in due course.
Auditions will be held at the Roy Couzens Theatre at Westville Boys' High Theatre on 21 June from 16h00. The address is 26 Wandsbeck Rd, Dawncrest, Westville.
A panel chaired by Evan Roberts, one of Durban's leading independent musicians, eventors and musical directors, will select successful groups and individuals to participate in the Hilton Arts Festival 25th anniversary year event. He will also direct the one-off concert.
Give your pupils the opportunity to submerge themselves in quality performance at the 25th Hilton Arts Festival this year at Hilton College from 15 - 17 September.
