The University of Pretoria’s renowned OVUWA Choir will be performing and recording at the University of Hartford. Under the direction of Hartt alumnus, Mxolisi Duda, the choir performs a wide variety of cultural, folk and indigenous music and dances that celebrate South Africa’s diversity. The ensemble strives for true authenticity in its portrayal of all of the music in its repertoire, rendering the music and dance with pride, grace and radiant energy.
OVUWA – a word that means “cultural reawakening” – will perform in various spaces around the UHart campus including Alumni Plaza (weather permitting – otherwise, the choir will perform at the entrance of the Commons) at 5 p.m., and in the Gengras Student Union at 5:30 p.m. In addition, the group will do a recording session in the newly renovated studio earlier in the day.
The Hartt School is delighted to be able to share this experience with the rest of the University of Hartford community. It is a rare opportunity that should not be missed!
