As SAMRO embarks on an extensive programme of celebrations that each year have injected more than R50-million into music education in South Africa since 1962, through the 60 scholarships and 1 404 bursaries awarded to date, supporting 35 music schools at a variety of tertiary institutions throughout Southern Africa.
South Africa needs new, original music works and we are pleased that we can add to our country’s treasure trove of classical and contemporary compositions by encouraging excellence in composition, after all it is this creativity that is the lifeblood of SAMRO’s revenue, ” said Le Roux.
