Delighted to announce that the BRAZILIAN NATIONAL THEATRE CLAUDIO SANTORO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA will be premiering a new work while at the Festival. Only two compositions were selected out of the 20 participating composers. Wild Horses don’t Break for full orchestra will have its work premiere in Brasília, Brazil this September 2018! I’m am thrilled to say the least
The first rounds of the Len van Zyl competition are underway
Keith Moss has begun the preliminary rounds of the Len van Zyl conducting competition and is seeing here having master classes with conductor Victor Yampolsky of the Bienen school of Music.
Rehearsals are now well underway and some great music is being produced by all involved. We have some snapshots of the first rehearsal. The Paz Consort will feature the music of Pieter Bezuidenhout,Franco Prinsloo, and Keith Moss on the 8th and 10th of August. Newly written concerto’s for Marimba, Harp and String Orchestra will be conducted by Paz Consort director Keith Moss. Magda de Vries brings her exceptional talent to the concert, a tireless champion of new music in South Africa.
This is something new! Composer Keith Moss is arranging well loved songs and melodies from all over for 12 cellos and non other than CH2 Guitar duo. Keith met these crazy cross-over flamenco/classical/rock/whatever you can think of after they performed with the University Orchestra of Pretoria. This collaboration is going to present an awesome concert, and something wholly different than what Paz Consort has been up to for the past 4 years.

The Paz Consort will kick off 2013 with a new concert for voice, harp and clarinet in Nazareth House Chapel. Performed by Kim Witbooi (voice), Gaylen Sales (harp) and Morné van Heerden (clarinet), the concert will feature new works by Pieter Bezuidenhout,Franco Prinsloo, and Keith Moss. Rehearsals are in full swing. The challenges arising from writing for the Harp have been educational and Gaylen has helped all the composers realise their vision by giving us a lot of coaching. Looking forward to the first Paz Consort concert in Pretoria
Keith Moss will be directing the Paz Consort from Pretoria, South Africa after relocating to the region. He’ll be continuously working on ideas to create new platforms for young composers. In addition Keith has enrolled at the University of Pretoria under Dr Alexander Johnson for study towards a Doctorate of Music
Member of the Paz Consort will perform two new works by Keith Moss and Matthijs van Dijk. Returning to where it all began in Grahamstown original member Hilary Mohr spearheads this performance on oboe. Kingswood College will play host to the concert on 6 September 2012.
