NWU hosts online concert for all

The North-West University (NWU) understands how difficult life is at the moment for both musicians and their fans. With concert venues across the country on lockdown, the NWU has found a way for students, staff and members of the public to enjoy musical performances from the safety of their own homes.

The NWU will be hosting a virtual concert, The NWU Alumni & Friends Concert, on 19 June. It will start at 19:00 and will be live-streamed on the NWU’s various Facebook and Twitter pages.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has significantly changed life as we know it. As a university we wanted to share some musical joy with our stakeholders during these uncertain times, because no one knows when things will get back to what they used to be,” says NWU stakeholder relations practitioner Louis Janse van Rensburg.

Louis says the concert also serves as an awareness campaign for the NWU Covid-19 relief fund for students, which aims to obtain funding to procure the necessary electronic equipment for our students.
