Family affair for rising music star

With a Laura Searle Prize and a spot on the Dean's Merit List no less than three times, Coila-Leah Enderstein is undoubtedly one of UCT's rising stars in the music field.

And on 15 December Enderstein will graduate with distinction (no surprise there) with a Bachelor of Music degree in western classical piano performance. And it's going to be a family affair.

Enderstein's mother, Billy Enderstein of the School of Actuarial Science, will hood her, and her daughter is excited about the occasion.

"It will be wonderful to be hooded by my mother," she said. "She has been involved with and has been close to me throughout my academic career at UCT, and I appreciate the opportunity to share the culmination of it all with her."

Next year she will pursue her honours studies in piano performance, and is set to stage a couple of performances at UCT in March and April.
