Professor Denis Goldberg, patron of the Kronendal Music Academy, was guest of honour at the event. He spoke beautifully about the struggle of artists in the Apartheid years. The last time I saw Prof. Goldberg, was in the Liepzig Gewandhaus where he was the guest of honour at the CT Tango Ensemble debut at that prestigious venue. What an honour to have had my path intersect with this inspiring human being. — at Riverside Estates Guest House.
The Kronendal Music Academy Jazz Ensemble opened the concert with “So What” by Miles Davis, instantly taking me back to my first Jazz lectures with Darius Brubeck at Natal University. Miles Davis’ “Kind of Blue” was the topic of a lecture module, which I admit I had great difficulty getting to grips with. Fresh from Bloemfontein, I had never heard of Miles Davis. And at the time, I was not sure I needed to be listening to this album as part of my “formal, classical” training. How stupid can you be when you are young! Luckily I grew some braincells in the meantime. Kronendal Music Academy actually has had students go on to study at the UCT SA Colelge of Music Jazz school. A worthwhile project to support!
