MTN Hosts 13th Edition of MUSON Graduation Concert

Posted on August 31, 2020

After two years of studying music from some of the country’s finest teachers, the 2020 graduating set of the Musical Society of Nigeria’s (MUSON) School of Music performed at the first virtual concert for the school on Monday, August 24, 2020.

The show tagged ‘Evening with MUSON Stars’ had performances by graduates of MUSON who gave the show of their lives! Various medleys by foreign and Nigerian acts such as Duduke by Simisola ‘Simi’ Kosoko; Ma Gbagbe Mi by S. K. Oretimehin and Czardas by Vittorio Monti were performed to an entranced audience.  

The MUSON has organized graduation concerts for final year students for the past twelve years, however, this was the institution’s first virtual graduation.

The students performed live from the Shell Hall of the MUSON centre while observing strict social distancing procedures.

Classical music fans across Nigeria were intrigued by this MUSON first, and the spin the youngsters created with classical music this year.

It was also an opportunity for curious fans of other genres of music to experience music at its purest.

Call for applications for the 14th edition of the MTN-MUSON Scholars programme is ongoing.
