The Buskaid Soweto String Ensemble presents their annual concert, with a line-up of four past and present Buskaid violinists as soloists performing. The ensemble performs pieces from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, Sarasate’s Zigeunerwiesen and Mendelssohn’s 10th String Symphony. They also perform a few pop songs and township Kwela numbers.
The Buskaid Soweto String Ensemble was started in 1992 in response to the difficulties young, black township musicians face. The music school and string ensemble has produced a number of highly successful musicians.
