Building on the discoveries of the Performing the Jewish Archive team, some of the finest student composers from the South African College of Music and Stellenbosch Konservatorium present newly-composed songs based on research emerging from the project. Overseen by composers Hendrik Hofmeyer and Hans Roosenschoon.
A discussion with the composers, performers and project leaders will follow the concert.
