The Kenya Conservatoire of Music has announced that the 2021 Fret Venture Concert will take place on Wednesday 17th November at the Kenya National Theatre.

The Fret Venture series seeks to give students a professional platform on which they can display some of the skills they have gained in the classroom and on stage.

The event will begin at 6 p.m on Wednesday 17th November. Tickets are available on at Ksh. 1,000. COVID-19 protocols will be strictly observed at the physical event.

The Concert series began in 2011 as an informal recital session at the Kenya Conservatoire of Music and has been held at different venues. These include the Alliance Francaise Wangari Maathai auditorium the Louis Leakey auditorium, the Brearburn Theatre and most recently at the Kenya National Theatre.

Previous events have featured a wide range of musicians including vocalists like AFRIMA Nominated Olivia Ambani and Noel Nderitu and guitarists Ivy Alexander and London Based Guitar sensation Shyam Shah.

The 2021 Edition of the Fret Venture series is going with the slogan Do Not Fret, and will feature performances by Manaseh Uzele, Fret Venture Chamber Ensemble, vocalists including Lisa Oduor-Noah, Christine Wambui and guitarist Ivy Alexander who just released her debut album in 2021.

The last Concert was held in May 2019, skipping last year’s edition owing to the restrictive measures put in place to combat the spread of COVID-19.
