The Bank Windhoek Swakopmunder Musikwoche is an annual music event taking place under the patronage of the German Evangelic-Lutheran Church. Every December music professionals are brought from national and international institutions to instruct and assist young and old musicians in Namibia. The event lasts 10 days and culminates in a series of concerts offered to the public. Alexander Fokkens will again be the Musical Director, supported by the Choir Master, Hans-Jochen Stiefel. The Junior Orchestra this year will be conducted by Mrs Irene Schultz-Neumann from Germany, looking back at more than 30 years of experience with children and adolescent orchestras.
“We are looking forward to lecturers from Namibia, South Africa, Germany, Belgium and the United States of America, as well as a group of students from the University of Cape Town, who will support our participants in their quest for excellence.
The students will also be practicing with smaller groups”, said Christiane Berker, Organisational Director of the Swakopmunder Musikwoche Team.
