Viva Musica!

A Bird's Eye View of Music at Unisa

By Patricia B. Lawrence

Since 1894, the University of South Africa (Unisa) has been nurturing and promoting musical talents. In that time, music education at the university has evolved into a one-of-a-kind system that encompasses graded examinations, high-quality academic qualifications, music development, and national and international competitions. This system reaches every corner of South Africa and embraces the full spectrum of musical progression, from beginners through to intermediate, advanced, professional, and world-famous musicians. Viva Musica! is a celebration of musical talents in South Africa and of Unisa's role in nurturing and promoting these talents - from budding musicians basking in the limelight for the first time to several of the world's most prominent conductors, composers, soloists, and performing musicians. Viva Musica! is an ebullient, colorful portrayal of the creative energy that the university's contribution to music has helped generate.
