SA Oboist set to Perform in Harare

SOUTH African oboist Kobus Malan will perform in Harare on Sunday as a guest performer of Celebrity Subscription Concerts.

Accompanied by Zimbabwe’s foremost concert pianist, Jeanette Micklem, his programme will include works by Telemann, Saint Seans, Schumann, Ben-Haim and Reisenstein.
Malan is a graduate of the University of Pretoria and the University of South Africa, specialising in performance practice, musicology, music theory and music education. He has won various prizes and awards, has been principal oboist in several South African orchestras and has gained a reputation as a chamber music player. He has performed on a number of CD albums produced in South Africa and has taught at various universities and music schools in that country.
In 2002 he started a platform for the arts, Multipodium, for the Dutch/South Africa Society in Amsterdam, involving presentations of chamber music, art, drama and literature of South African origin. Participation in the famed St Nazaire Chamber Music Festival in France led to the commissioned premiere of a work by South African composer Mokale Koapeng for oboe, string trio and jembe plus narrator. In 2007 he launched the Egoli Salon Orchestra.
The Celebs concert will take place at the Harare International School Theatre at 4pm. Advance booking can be made at The Spotlight booking office in the Reps Theatre foyer, which is open Tuesday to Friday from 9am to 4pm and on Saturday from 9am to 12 noon.
