The School of Music at Brandopn University has a strong track record of producing high-calibre classical musicians, including Jesse Plessis.
Jesse studied performance and composition at the school.
He was recently one of 15 pianists to study for a week with Norma Fisher, one of the most respected piano pedagogues, at the Royal College of Music in London.
Jesse was one of the four "Generation Y" musicians to perform at Augustfest IV.
