Michaela JacobsWe were delighted to hear that Michaela Jacobs has been given a bursary to participate in the Stellenbosch International Chamber Music Festival (SICMF) from the 1 to 10 July. The Festival is open to participants between the ages of 12 and 28. All entrants (approximately 300 students) receive chamber music coaching with some of the most exciting instrumentalists of the international stage. With the exception of the pianists, these entrants will play in the Festival orchestra with those top performers.

Although the SICMF – the biggest festival of its kind in Africa – has a strong educational focus, it also boasts a unique concert series with a programme musical works which have never been performed in South Africa. A total of 30 South African and overseas musicians will form part of the SICMF faculty.
