Student band on Artscape mentorship programme
19 May 2009
UCT student band Ological Studies is one of three bands on Artscape's 2009 Young Jazz Band Mentorship Programme. With the focus firmly on development and education, master classes are conducted by well-known local jazz icons who also form the judging panel. This year the team includes Melanie Scholtz, Keith Tabisher, Kevin Gibson and Andrew Lilley of UCT's South African College of Music. The project was initiated by Artscape in 2003 to recognise the raw talent, particularly in Cape Town, where there is a jazz tradition. The programme ends with the Artscape Youth Jazz Festival on 6 June at the Artscape Theatre, where the band, featuring (from left) Sade Ross Sibusiso Dlameni and Phumlani Mtiti will join Public Attention and Touch in showcasing their work.
