Concert: Sounds of the Heart, Apr 11 2013 @ MJ Centre

Sounds of the heart Poster-sm


Thursday 11th April 2013 sees musicians from Nairobi School (Old and New) on one stage at the Michael Joseph Centre. The concert, apart from being a wonderful evening of music-making, is aimed at raising awareness of how important music is in the government school curriculum. You’ll be surprised at how many fantastic Kenyan musicians have come out of the Kenyan government school system. The evening includes the following groups.



‘The Morans’ are a brass group consisting of players ranging from University lecturers, Music teachers and Music students. The group was formed about a year ago and plays a wide range of musical styles ranging from works from the Renaissance Period to present day works. Members of this group are also involved in other musical groups such as the ‘Nairobi Orchestra’, ‘The National Youth Orchestra of Kenya’ (KNYO) and ‘The OCs’. Some of them also teach in Nairobi’s Korogocho slums under the Ghetto Classics programme run by the Art of Music Foundation.


‘The OCs’ are members of the Old Cambrian Society (Kenya). This society is the alumni organization for Nairobi School. ‘The OCs’ consists of alumni from the school, ranging between 1978 up to class of 2012. Group members are committed to raising Music Education standard at the school. Several of them volunteer their time and resources in teaching the current students. They are also involved in other musical groups such as the ‘Nairobi Orchestra’, ‘The National Youth Orchestra of Kenya’ (KNYO) and ‘The Morans’. Some of them also teach in Nairobi’s Korogocho slums under the Ghetto Classics programme run by the Art of Music Foundation. This group is a few months old and hopes to keep growing as more students graduate from the school.

The show starts at 7pm and tickets cost Kshs 500/-
