Hugo Lambrechts Music Centre

Hugo Lambrechts Music Centre

At the Hugo Lambrechts Music Centre opportunities are created for students to feel at home in an atmosphere of music making at a high level. The Hugo Lambrechts Music Centre has become renowned as a Music Centre par excellence. Quality practical tuition in all the symphonic instruments is maintained throughout and this Music Centre affords young South Africans the opportunity to prepare themselves to compete internationally.

It is the aim of the Music Centre to provide pupils with the opportunity of experiencing all the variations of musical performance, ie solo playing, chamber music and orchestral playing. All students at the Centre are involved in string or wind orchestras. More advanced students can participate in the symphony orchestra. Young musicians and orchestras are often given the opportunity to perform in public. Beginners may rent instruments on request.

The Music Centre was inaugurated in 1986 to provide training in all symphonic instruments (ie strings, woodwind, brass and percussion) for pupils at schools in the Western Cape. It is located in the oldest school building in the Northern suburbs, where the Victorian atmosphere and graceful courtyards enhance the music making which takes place here daily. At this unique Music Centre, young musicians receive professional training and the Music Centre has therefore become a valuable source of instrumentalists and soloists for South Africa.
