The second instalment of the College of the Arts (COTA) Concert Week will kick off today at their campus in town at 19:00.
The week-long activities form part of raising funds for the college and simultaneously bring people together, to entertain, inform, and to educate and inspire all. The platform brings lecturers, part-time and full-time students together to participate in various art disciplines, such as music, dance, drama, art exhibitions, media arts and fashion.
A student concert will be held in the week at 19h00, with short films by students on Tuesday and Thursday at 13h00, as well as a theatre performance on Saturday at 12h00 in the afternoon. Full-time students will assist in sound, photography and capturing the event.
According to the organisers, this year’s intake was high but they could only accommodate a certain number due to the available spaces.
The highlight of the concert will be NAMAs 2014 Female Artist of the Year Erna Chimu, who will be performing alongside lecturers.
