Maudé Montierre and Vuyo Sotashe, both students at UCT's South African College of Music, were named as the winners of the 2011 Southern African Music Rights Organisation (SAMRO) Overseas Scholarships Competition.
Montierre won the scholarship in the western art music category, while Sotashe was awarded top honours in the jazz/popular music category. Each winner receives a coveted R160 000 scholarship, plus a R10 000 travel allowance, from SAMRO's Endowment for the National Arts, to study music at a recognised international institution.
