Singers invited to apply for SAMRO scholarships

Posted by radio On April - 22 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

Are you South Africa’s next vocal sensation? If you are a gifted young jazz or opera singer, you could win a coveted SAMRO Overseas Scholarship.

New-SAMRO-Foundation-Logo[1]

Applications for the 2015 SAMRO Overseas Scholarships for singers are now open, but the 15 May 2015 deadline is fast approaching. Music students and young professionals aged 32 and younger are eligible to apply for these prestigious music study awards.

 

Every year since 1962, the SAMRO Foundation – which manages music education and corporate social investment programmes on behalf of the Southern African Music Rights Organisation – offers South Africa’s gifted music students the opportunity to win one of two lucrative scholarships to further their postgraduate studies overseas.

 

One of these is awarded in the Western Art (or “classical”) music genre and the other is presented for excellence in jazz music. The scholarships operate on a four-year cycle, alternating among instrumentalists, composers, keyboard players and singers.

 

In 2015, the SAMRO Foundation is inviting applications from music students majoring in vocal performance at a South African university. Applicants must be citizens of South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho or Swaziland, born after 15 May 1982.

 

The two main overseas scholarship awards are currently valued at R170 000 each, with a number of subsidiary prizes also available for exceptional candidates. The total prize pot for this highly regarded annual music competition amounts to almost R500 000.

 

The SAMRO Overseas Scholarships Competition has produced a gallery of illustrious singing alumni over the past 50 years.

 

After winning the 2011 SAMRO scholarship in the Western Art category, University of Cape Town alumnus Maudé Montierre went on to obtain her Master’s degree in opera cum laude at the prestigious Royal Academy of Music in London. Currently a PhD student at UCT, she hopes to become the youngest South African to graduate with a doctorate next year.

 

Since winning the SAMRO scholarship, Maudé has sung in the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition in New York and was a finalist in the Wilhelm Stenhammar International Music Competition in Sweden. She has also been invited to sing at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival in Germany and the Glimmerglass Festival Young Artists’ Programme in the United States.

 

Among her roles to date, she counts appearances for Cape Town Opera as well as singing the challenging Queen of the Night aria from Die Zauberflöte for Brent Opera in London and Gretel in Hänsel und Gretel for Edinburgh’s Opera Holloway, to great acclaim. Maudé will be singing Donna Anna in Don Giovanni on London’s West End in July.

 

Fellow UCT graduate Vuyo Sotashe was always earmarked for great things. Even before winning the jazz singing category in the 2011 SAMRO Overseas Scholarships competition, Vuyo had performed with George Benson at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival and had received a South African Music Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album with his church’s worship band, Proxy.

 

In 2012, he was selected to sing with the Standard Bank National Youth Jazz Band at the Johannesburg Joy of Jazz Festival before touring Sweden with the band.

 

Vuyo was subsequently awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to further his studies in the United States and has also taken lessons with the likes of Maria Schneider and a Thelonious Monk Competition winner and Grammy nominated vocalist – Gretchen Parlato.

 

Both of these young music luminaries-in-the-making used their SAMRO scholarships as a springboard to greater things, and now the sky is certainly the limit for Vuyo and Maudé – as will be the case for this year’s winners.

 

The scholarships competition takes the format of three rounds, adjudicated by a panel of music experts and culminating in a public gala concert at the Linder Auditorium in Johannesburg. There, the two top candidates in each category will be required to perform a number of prescribed and individually selected compositions, accompanied by professional musicians.

 

Prospective candidates for the 2015 SAMRO Overseas Scholarships for singers are invited to download the regulations and the application form from the SAMRO Foundation website (www.samrofoundation.org.za). Applications should be submitted to: SAMRO Foundation, 20 De Korte Street, Braamfontein, 2017, before Friday, 15 May 2015. Enquiries may be directed to anriette.chorn@samro.org.za.

Simphiwe Dana will be celebrating her 10-year anniversary with a stunning performance held at the Bassline in Johannesburg on the 25th April 2015.

 

Kaya FM is honoured to be associated with Simphiwe’s illustrious 10 year music career. The station has been part of her journey since her debut album Zandisile.

Kaya FM played a significant role in giving her music air-play and in 2005 when Simphiwe won her first SAMA the radio station was there celebrating with her.

 

“The social activist within Simphiwe is what caught my attention many years ago when we first met.  She epitomises the Afropolitan women we strive to celebrate on a daily basis at Kaya FM.  Dana’s timeless music has a strong social awakening which will remain relevant and celebrated for many more years to come in South Africa” said Greg Maloka, Managing Director at Kaya FM.

Simphiwe Dana will be performing material off her latest SAMAXXI Nominated album Firebrand (Best Female Artist and Best African Adult Album) as well as all time favourites.

 

“Music has allowed to me voice my opinions about the world I live in, and I am just truly grateful that the continent has been so receptive to my sound and story.  Kaya FM has always been a major supporter of my music.  Our brands are very similar in that we speak to the progressive, socially conscious citizen.” says Simphiwe Dana

 

Rising on the scene in 2004 with the release of her platinum-selling, award-winning debut Zandisile, Simphiwe Dana has firmly planted her place in the heart of South Africa’s Entertainment Industry.  Throughout her 10 year career in music, Simphiwe Dana has collected 6 South African Music Awards (SAMA), 2 METRO FM Music Awards (Best Female Artist and Best Contemporary Jazz), 1 Avo Session Award in Europe (alongside Elton John who received The Lifetime Achievement Avo Session Award), a Metropolitan Eastern Cape Arts and Culture Award and a Pan South African Language Award.

At MTN, we’re thrilled to see the high standards of excellence in South African radio. On behalf of all at MTN, I extend my congratulations to the finalists and to all the entrants in the 2015 MTN Radio Awards.”

 

The finalists in the Station of the Year category, as well as the inductees for Bright Stars, Hall of Fame and Lifetime Achiever will be announced on 31 March. The finalist in the My Station listener competition will be announced on 8 April.

On Air Radio Conference menu

Posted by radio On March - 18 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

The On Air Radio Conference is a must attend event for those who programme radio, sell radio or buy radio airtime.

radioconf

These are just two of the session’s lined-up for the On Air Radio Conference.  Don’t miss out, book your seat now.

 

Programme manager’s mandate – a panel discussion touching on issues like managing talent, getting the line-up right, achieving optimum station sound and the tricky and sometimes tense relationship with the sales team all whilst managing client and listener expectations. David O’ Sullivan hosts a discussion on the business of radio with General Manager for OFM, Nick Efstathiou; Programme Manager at East Coast Radio, Zane Derbyshire;  Ravi Naidoo, Station Manager at 94.7 Highveld Stero and Ferdinand Mabalane, GM: Programming at Times Media.

 

 

 

POPI – What are the implications for radio stations? – they accumulate a substantial amount of information about their listeners through several forms of interaction including competitions, research, merchandise sales, loyalty programmes etc. This information is invaluable to the station, however Protection of Personal Information legislation dictates not only how the personal information may be used, but also how it needs to be protected and stored. Okyerebea Ampofo-Anti, Snr. Associate at Webber Wentzel, gives us the low down.

On Air Radio Conference : Line-Up

Posted by radio On March - 12 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

Within the next three years, radio advertising revenue in South Africa is expected to pass R6-billion.

And as much as radio has always been under threat by other platforms it is the last mass-reach, real-time media platform and remains attractive to both big spending brands and mom and pop businesses that have something important to say.

radioconf

Right now in a country where less than 20% of households will have broadband connectivity by 2018, 90% of the adult population are reached by radio.

The On Air Radio Conference is a must attend event for those who programme radio, sell radio or buy radio airtime.

 

Our line-up will cover:

 

  • Creative radio advertising – the lifeblood of any successful advert, campaign or investment. We hear from a leading creative director followed by a critique of current radio advertising by a panel of experts. How to design an effective radio campaign; how to brief the agency or station; how to judge a good and a bad radio spot.
  • How to buy radio easily? Some dissenters say it’s becoming too fragmented with the proliferation of stations. Some say it’s getting too expensive. An interactive panel discussion with leading media agencies will look at building real synergies between a good radio campaign and complementary media as well as the art and science of promotions and sponsorship.
  • Voices of veterans – legends of radio have a wealth of experience in the radio industry. Their love for the medium endures and, being radio people, they love to reminisce and provide their thoughts on how the industry has changed and where it is going. The discussion will also look at the changes in technology and where they see the future of radio and in particular, the role of on-air talent in a rapidly evolving industry.
  • Programme manager’s mandate – a panel discussion touching on issues like managing talent, getting the line-up right, achieving optimum station sound and the tricky and sometimes tense relationship with the sales team all whilst managing client and listener expectations.
  • Internet radio vs Broadcast radio – some see Internet radio as the next big thing – a new way of delivering content to a very broad audience. Others see it as being limited and not a viable business opportunity. Where are the gaps that Internet radio fills, that traditional radio is not serving? Experts and pioneers make a case for their own business models and share their views on the future of radio and content deliver
