The special commemorative concert in honour of renowned conductor and pianist, Arnold Bosman, who died at the age of 47 in Italy five years ago, recently took place in the Anglican Cathedral in Bloemfontein. Bosman, previously from Bloemfontein and a former learner of Grey College, died from a brain tumour. This special event was requested by Dr Willem Bosman, his father, who approached Prof. Jonathan Jansen, Rector of the University of the Free State (UFS), and the UFS Department of Music to commemorate his son’s premature death. Dr Bosman stated that he would like to donate his son’s musical inheritance to the UFS. The catalogue of sheet music to be donated to the UFS was officially handed over to Prof. Jansen by Dr Bosman’s son and only inheritor, Willem Bosman jr.
