Conservatoire of Music

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Initially the Conservatoire of Music [1] in Stellenbosch was run as a private institution until Prof Hans Endler sold it to the Stellenbosch University in 1934. Thus, a music department was introduced into the Faculty of Arts at the University. During the period 1934-1937 the Conservatoire was under the direct management of the Stellenbosch University Administration. The new Conservatoire building was completed in 1978. This ultra modern building with its exceptional acoustical qualities was designed by Colyn and Meiring. The building can accommodate approximately 140 fulltime under-graduate students over and above many post-graduate and part-time students. With many concerts and recitals, the Konservatorium/Conservatoire and in particular the Endler Hall, play a very important role in the cultural life of Stellenbosch. (Read more at: whatson [2])
