Change the world


Reasons to be Proud - #R2bP: Matthew Perry, a final year Bachelor of Music student, has been selected as one of eight performers to take part in the 2023 Youth Concerto Festival hosted by the Pretoria Symphony Orchestra.


Matthew is the only person from the Eastern Cape to be selected.
On 5 March, he will perform the Glazunov Concerto for Alto Saxophone with the Orchestra. Young musicians between the ages of 12 and 21 were invited to audition for this prestigious festival. Participants were required to perform a single movement from a classical, romantic or late romantic concerto of their choice after which the best eight musicians were selected.
Matthew matriculated from Pearson High School in 2019, and decided to continue with his music studies under Paul Richard at the University.
