University of Nairobi Orchestra

The University of Nairobi held its inaugural orchestra concert yesterday where staff, students and the university community were treated to an evening of music and songs. The event was held at Taifa Hall, on May, 8, 2018.

Speaking during the event, the University of Nairobi Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi, observed that the University of Nairobi orchestra has been in the pipeline for a long time and it was an idea whose time had come. “I had dreamt of a day when staff and students from various faculties would sit down and enjoy some good music, as they relax away from books, laboratories, libraries and the rigorous research going on at the university”, he recalled.

Prof. Mbithi revealed that going forward, the musical orchestra will be promoted as a culture of the University and that the University of Nairobi Choir will be trained to world class.

The Concert was a joint performance by the Kenya Conservatoir School of Music and Nakipo Music School.

The event was attended by among others; University Management, Deans and Directors and Dean of Students, Father. Dr.  Domnic Wamugunda.
