KZN Philharmonic Orchestra Performs for UKZN Students
Arts and Culture Education Discipline students on the Edgewood campus were recently treated to a two-hour performance by the KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra.
The concert formed part of the Arts and Culture modules with students viewing and learning how the orchestra performs and the different instruments used for a musical routine.
Head of the Arts and Culture Discipline, Dr Yolisa Nompula, said the orchestra conducted a workshop for Arts and Culture 120 (EDAR 120) students highlighting the instruments of the orchestra, their distinctive sounds and structure as well as how the stage gets set up before an orchestral performance.
‘The Arts Discipline always provides a huge opportunity for student teachers to actually see the instruments of the orchestra instead of learning about them in the lectures. This is an annual event that equips students with knowledge and skills on how to teach Music, arts and culture in the schools,’ said Nompula.
After the presentation, the Arts and Culture 120 students wrote a report on instruments and a short report of the whole performance as feedback which is evaluated by the music lecturers.
‘Arts Education believes in Visual learning as it is fun and effective,’ said Nompula.
