UJ Arts & Culture, a division of the Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture (FADA) at the University of Johannesburg is excited to announce the world renowned UJ Choir’s up-coming concert with Afro Jazz diva of South Africa, Gloria Bosman, on 13th of September at the UJ Art Centre Theatre on the University of Johannesburg’s Kingsway Campus.

Inspired by love and nature, this unusual fusion of art forms and music styles will be a first of its kind
and a highlight for both UJ Choir and their audiences. The concert will feature choral gems as well as musical arrangements created especially for this event and is sure to be a musical treat.

Supporting Bosman and the Choir singers are jazz pianist Pebble Mambane, cellist Gerrit Koorsen, harpist Jude HarpStar and percussionist Tlale Makhene. The concert will also feature a young and upcoming vocal group that birthed from UJ Choir called Breathe.

UJ Choir are world champions, having taken gold in both the Mixed Choirs Western music repertoire and Folk Music A Cappella and was crowned Champions of the World in the Folk Music A Cappella at the World Choir Games 2018. The UJ Choir highlights the combination of talent and resilience found in students who are driven by their passion for excellence.
Bosman was one of the adjudicators of the Folk Song category of the World Choir Games last year, and she fell in love with the choir. Out of this mutual appreciation and awe, a dream to do a concert together was born. The fans are in for a treat!
