Momentum Beleggings Aardklop Aubade in collaboration with Afrikaanse Hoër Seunskool presents: The Scullery Qiuntet.
The Scullery Quintet is a new South African classical and contemporary music crossover ensemble that features a unique blend of the classic string quartet sound accompanied by jazz rhythm section. The ensemble’s instrumentation comprises the standard string quartet configuration: first violin, second violin and viola, with contrabass replacing the role of the cellist, with the addition of drum set as the fifth instrument. The programme will include classical music and inspirations from the world of pop, blues, African and swing.
The Scullery Quintet is led and directed by triple SAMA award winning musician and jazz drummer Peter Auret (currently working with the Sydney Mavundla quartet, Nataniël, Charl du Plessis Trio and Ziza Muftic) with award-winning violinists Waldo Luc Alexander (William Kentridge, Sontonga Quartet, Festival Orchestra) and Hana Yim-Wahl (Johannesburg Festival Orchestra, Phoenix Orchestra , the Muses, In die Kollig, Noot vir Noot), viola by Tiisetso Mashishi (JPO, JP Quartet, Mzansi Philharmonic) and double bass by Amaeshi Ikechi (Zonke, Selaelo Selota, Sydney Mavundla quartet).
