The Stellenbosch students will perform Carnival of the Animals by Saint-Saëns with narration by Philip de Vos.

As always the students will perform at both institutions – Tuesday 27 September will be at the Baxter Concert Hall, Cape Town at 8.15pm and Wednesday 28 September will be at the Stellenbosch Konservatorium Fismer Hall at 8pm.
