A programme of Western classical music, jazz and popular music.

A number of years ago, the Dean of Humanities, with foresight, felt that there was an absolute necessity to raise money for financially disadvantaged first-year music students at Wits University. A concert was the obvious vehicle as a fundraiser and what better way than for the first-year students to perform in the concert and then have a small panel of lecturers judge their performances and award prizes in designated amounts of cash to the three winners. Further, in acknowledgement of the initiator of the idea, the concert would be called The Dean’s Concert. The tradition has been maintained and expanding on the lunch-hour concept, the concert highlights some of the First Year and Foundation music student performers. Students compete for monetary prizes sponsored by the present Dean of Humanities, Prof. Ruksana Osman. The programme includes western classical, jazz, and popular music.

Entrance is FREE and seats are allocated on a first come first serve basis.

Do not miss the opportunity to imbibe some of the country’s hottest budding talent, specially selected by the Division of Music’s practical staff.
