It is our pleasure and privilege to sponsor the first ever Kompos Composition Symposium, co-hosted by Kompos and the University of Stellenbosch. Our support for inaugural event is part of our pledge to give back to the communities where we live and work. If music be the food of love, we think it's because it is a universal language, breaking down the barriers between us.

The programme offers a feast of new works by young and established South African composers, performed by the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra.


KOMPOS is a student initiative of Stellenbosch University founded in 2010 by Antoni Schonken and Tricia Theunissen. During the last 5 years, KOMPOS has aided students in realising over 100 performances of their newly composed works. This symposium represents an organisational milestone, and is the culmination of many years of passionate music making and collaborations with musicians, performing artists and conductors.
