Friends of Music and Adesso Enterprises invites music-lovers to an afternoon of song featuring soprano Nozuko Teto, tenor Wayne Mkhize and baritone Khulekani Miya accompanied by Juan Burgers.

Afternoon of Song will take place on June 19, 2022, at 14h00 at the Durban Jewish Centre.

“After their very well-received concert last year, we are excited at the return of Nozuko Teto and her friends. They will be presenting an exhilarating programme of music, including Arie antiche songs, Operatic repertoire, Oratorios and Musicals,” says Keith Millar who runs Friends of Music.

Nozuko Teto is a leading South African soprano. She hails from the Eastern Cape and has sung her way across the oceans and into international opera theatres, wowing audiences both locally and abroad with her wonderful voice.
