Chairman’s message at the close of 2013

Our Centenary now draws to a close. It has been another busy and successful year in which we have focussed on our core business which is to promote the festivals: Vocal & Instrumental, Speech & Drama, Visual Arts and Literary. Our celebration, if one can call it such, has been in what we do best - providing a platform for the many participants to express themselves in their chosen disciplines and to be judged and adjudicated by panels of local and international adjudicators. We remain the only nationally recognised institution which does this.

For a more permanent record of the hundred years from 1913 to today we are in the process of compiling a history of the Institute which we hope to publish next year. This will mark the Centennial. Poring over old minute books, newspaper articles, certificates, records and personal recollections we have been able to assemble a wealth of fascinating material. The problem is condensing it into a readable volume! Should any of you have any records or recollections you feel may be of interest, it is not too late to submit them.

Entries 2013 have been marginally less than last year’s record entries for all four festivals. This may have been due to slightly more challenging subjects, particularly in the Visual Arts and the Literary Festivals. NIAA provides the stage for the appreciation and performance of vocal and instrumental music, acting, reciting and public speaking and the public display of visual art and literary composition.

This year we have expanded our workshops which are aimed at teachers, particularly in speech and drama where we managed to promote workshops in Gweru, Bulawayo and Harare with well qualified external trainers and specialists from the United States. Our adjudicators for the Eisteddfod and Speech & Drama also provided valuable guidance, not only to participants, but to their teachers as well.

A workshop was held for literature which attracted over 80 participants. We hope to expand all these efforts next year. If we can help the teachers, through these

Centennial cake

Keith Nicholsonworkshops, by showing them what we are looking for, then this can be passed on to their pupils. It assists in maintaining and improving standards. Feedback from teachers who have attended these workshops has been extremely positive.

The process of change is continuous. When I look back to the syllabi we had at the time of Independence in 1980, or even further back, to our Golden Jubilee in 1963, it is interesting to see how much they reflected the period of the times and the then-prevailing political landscapes. We continue to try and keep pace with changes in cultural perception and importance. New categories and classes continue to be introduced as we strive to strike a balance between the new and the well established in all our festivals.

In this regard we are in the process of arranging a “Think Tank” to try and develop some new ideas for the future thrust of the Institute’s activities. We feel a need to reach out further to remoter schools and broaden the scope of our training workshops. And any ideas you may have – as teachers, parents, supporters, sponsors and participants would be welcome.

Appreciation goes to all our major sponsors: Mashonaland Holdings Ltd for the Eisteddfod; Deloitte for Speech and Drama, CBZ Bank Ltd for Literary; Innscor Africa Ltd for Visual Arts and the great majority of ATS Schools for their annual contributions which largely cover the costs of the central office support for the four festivals. We express our thanks to the British Council for sponsoring the flight for the Eisteddfod adjudicator.

On behalf of Allied Arts I thank all who have supported us during the year, in particular the Executive Committee and all the many helpers who have willingly volunteered their time to assist at the festivals. Work is well under way for 2014 and I hope we can count on your continued support and involvement in the year ahead.

The Vocal and Instrumental Festival (Eisteddfod) was the first festival of NIAA’s centennial year, running from the 25th February to the 15th March with the Final Concert on the 16th March. A hundred years on, the Eisteddfod is flourishing. The total number of entries was up again this year: 1792 entries from 109 different schools and private studios from all over the country including Mutare, the Lowveld, Midlands and Bulawayo. We were very pleased to see an increase in the number of Bulawayo schools participating this year given that the first “festival” was held in Bulawayo on Whitsunday 1913.

Nicky Hammond, Director, Vocal & Instrumental Festival

The Eisteddfod runs for three consecutive weeks. In order to accommodate the large number of entries, many of which are choirs, orchestras and ensembles, we scheduled classes everyday from 8.30am through to 6pm (and sometimes as late as 9pm) and on seven of those days we ran two venues, so effectively the 2013 Eisteddfod ran for 26 days excluding the Final Concert! The majority of these classes were held at Prince Edward School in their Music Auditorium and Beit Hall, with marimbas on the Indoor Basketball Court and bagpipes and drumming on the fields. NIAA is extremely grateful to Prince Edward for so generously allowing us the use of these facilities.

We had six adjudicators this year. Tendekai Kuture from Africa University, Mutare adjudicated all the African music classes. Lindsay Johnston educated in Zimbabwe and now living in Durban, was the principal Western adjudicator largely responsible for the instrumental and choral classes. Ainsley Ryan Showalter, a trained mezzo-soprano from America who is currently living in Zimbabwe, adjudicated most of the vocalists and some junior pianists. Amy Macy, a cellist, assessed the junior strings whilst Mark Robbins and Mario Ciampi, who are specialist drummers, adjudicated the drum kit candidates. We thank them all for agreeing to take on this very difficult task and for sharing their wealth of knowledge and experience with the candidates.

Domincan Convent Grade 6

This year we had 83 Marimba ensembles in addition to all the solo, duet and trio candidates which amounted to over 20 hours of marimba playing! The Marimba Ensemble Challenge held on the 11th March was very exciting as the Honours candidates competed for the challenge trophies. Watershed College won the Kutinya Trophy (senior schools) and the Nic Manomano Trophy (junior schools) went to the Dominican Convent Primary School for the third consecutive year.

Year after year the external adjudicators are amazed and delighted by the very high standard of choral singing in Zimbabwe; 2013 was no exception, a large number of Honours were awarded to the 180 participating choirs. The Peterhouse choirs were outstanding this year winning the cups for Form 1 and 2 Girls, Form 1 and 2 Boys, Senior Boys, Senior Mixed and sharing the Senior Girls cup with the Dominican Convent. In the junior school section, Heritage did very well winning both the Junior Mixed cup and the Nursery School cup. We are very grateful to Twin Rivers and Harare International School for hosting the choir days and allowing 9000 choristers and all their supporters through their gates!

Watershed Advanced Marimbas

The 2013 Eisteddfod was brought to a fitting close with a concert that showcased a selection of the best items seen by the adjudicators. The Harare International School theatre was filled to capacity and many commented that it was one of the best Eisteddfod concerts they had been to. NIAA is proud of the role it plays in helping to keep music alive in Zimbabwe.

The centennial Eisteddfod was a huge success. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mashonaland Holdings for being our major sponsor for the last 8 years, the British Council for sponsoring an air ticket for the external adjudicator and CBZ Bank for covering the cost of bus tickets for some of the Bulawayo candidates. I would also like to sincerely thank everyone that contributed in any way, but especially the teachers, candidates and accompanists for their love of music and determination to produce quality performances, and the NIAA Committee and all the volunteers for so generously giving of their time to ensure that the Eisteddfod ran so efficiently.

The 2014 Eisteddfod Syllabus was released in early November so please contact the NIAA office if you have not had a copy. We look forward to seeing you next year!

The year started off on a high note with last year’s adjudicator, James Carey, returning to Zimbabwe to present his one man play ‘Coming to Zim’ at the 2013 HIFA. This was basically about why he accepted the offer to come to Zimbabwe, his impressions of the company and the speech and drama festival and how his visit impacted on his life. It was such a successful play that James gave an extra performance at the end of HIFA.

James stayed on after HIFA to assist with the Speech and Drama outreach programme. Initially he headed a team of local staff who went to the Midlands and Bulawayo to give workshops on how to make the most of entries in the annual Speech and Drama Festival. He was joined by Victoria Bryan who funded her own way to Zimbabwe to work with the team. They held workshops at Lomagundi College and various schools in Harare. It is hoped to expand this programme to more schools in February 2014.

Speech and Drama Festival
Once again we found it necessary to engage two adjudicators to cater for the large number of entries.

Gavin Peter, Festival Director

Tamika Lamison came to us from California. She is an award winning writer, director and producer. She graduated from American University with a BA in Performing Arts. She worked successfully in NYC as an actor before turning her attention behind the scenes. She mentors, teaches and volunteers regularly and is Exec. Director of Make A Film Foundation, a non profit organization which she created and founded.

Heather Jenvey - no stranger to Zimbabwe as she was born and schooled in Harare. She studied Speech and Drama under Mary Morgan-Davies and performed in both the music and the speech and drama Eisteddfods whilst at Blakiston and Girls’ High School. She taught at Blakiston, the Dominican Convent and at Sharon School for long and happy periods of time. She has also produced many school plays here in Zimbabwe. Heather moved to the United Kingdom 11 years ago. She became Head of Performing Arts at an Independent School in the forested countryside of Berkshire.

Currently she coaches pupils studying for their LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts) exams. She is passionate about the enhancing of drama with music and art and working with energetic, responsive and gifted children.

We thank them both for their helpful adjudications and for coping with a hectic schedule at four different schools between 26th June and the 13th July 2013.

Highlights – Shakespeare – after not presenting an award for five years three candidates were eligible – it was won by Sam Brakarsh for his sonnet and his monologue.

Joint winners of the Speech Teachers' Cup

Three new awards were presented:
Chisipite School donated the Caritas Cup for best item of senior poetry in honour of Chisipite’s Jubilee which was won by Thulani Nzonzo of St George’s for ‘Run Black Man, Run’.

The Imaginato Cup, presented to the institute by the Brakarsh family for the best item of prose, was won by Amira Naik.

To mark the Institute’s Centenary the institute introduced the Centenary Cup for the Best Recital. This was awarded to students of the Ruth Rodger Studio for their ‘Journey’ recital.

Chiedza Childrens' Home

There was a great increase in the level of creativity in the Festival and it is anticipated that a new class will be introduced in 2014 to cater for ‘physical theatre’.

Final Concert – Our guest of honour was the CEO of Deloitte Ben Mbanga in recognition of their decade of support. The final concert item was the recitation of a group poem by members of the allied arts committee and Deloitte staff members. A large cake was shared by the delighted audience!

Thanks go to Chipo Chikara, Musa Saruro, Zane E Lucas, Jamie McLaren and the NIAA Committee for their assistance with this festival.

The relevance of Literature to time and place came to the fore this year as the National Institute of Allied Arts celebrated its centennial, one hundred years of progress and change reflected in the thinking and writing of children of all ages. It was a great privilege to be a part of this celebration, and it culminated in the wonderful prize-giving function that was held at the Jubilee Hall at Hartmann house, on the 28th of September 2013.

This year the Literary festival attracted a total of 2177 entries. Entries were received from 40 junior schools and 25 senior schools from around the country. The standard of work was good and students responded with passion and skill to the diversity of topics on the syllabus. Of particular note is the work of a talented young man, James Wakefield (Grade Five) of Gateway Primary School, who is the first student to win national awards in both the prose and poetry sections of his grade.

Literary Festival prize winners

The awards ceremony was capped with a reading by Sherrill Bowker (Form 6) from Arundel School, from her impressive essay entitled “From Segregation to Integration – A History of Africa”. In it, she makes the profound statement that “the challenge for the people of today’s Africa is to stop thinking in the past and acting in the now, but to act in the now thinking of the future. We want our Africa to be a great leader in the world. We want our people to be the most prosperous and united people in the world. We can make this happen, we just need to accept each other and work as one team with one dream: to see our Africa rise again.”

One hundred years of Allied Arts have brought us to this point, the point at which our young generation realise the importance of unity of purpose. The next step forward can only lead us on to greater things.

Thank you to all the heads of schools, teachers and students who make the Literary festival a possibility and a success from year to year. It is your dedication and hard work that have made the National Institute of Allied Arts the great institution that it is today.

Below is the delightful poem by James Wakefield, entitled:

“A Season of Rain”

October heat has come again,
The thirsty plants await the rain.

The animals beside the stream,
A tiny trickle soon a dream.

At last we see a darker cloud,
As sounds of thunder grow more loud.

A dusty buck beneath the tree,
Can see the termites flying free.

As tiny droplets start to form,
Show the signs of a thunderstorm.

And when we see the very first bud,
We do not dare to splash in mud.

Then when all the plants turn green,
I wonder if the rain has been.

This year the theme was 'Celebration', and the 100 years that the The National Institute of Allied Arts has been in existence was the inspiration behind this. Within this theme, topics such as “Let's Party”, “The Feast”, “Carnival” and “Celebration of Fire” were included. These topics stretched across the age groups from Pre- School (2-4 years), up to Senior School students of 18 years old.

Laurin Cawood. Visual Arts Director

The festival received 2183 entries from 45 junior and 13 senior schools. We are grateful to St Christopher's school for allowing us to use their classrooms for the judging which took place during the August holidays

Best Junior ArtistCollage by Hellenic Primary

A great deal of thought and effort was put into the work submitted. In the junior categories (1-5) there was a wonderful selection of vibrant, energetic work, boasting splashes of colour and exploration of media. In the senior categories (6-8) , first hand observation and a mature sense of interpretation were prevalent. The overall prizewinners for each category, both in the junior and senior sections, stood out because of their individuality and unique approach in their work.

Best Senior Artist

My hope is that the syllabus provided a platform from which to discover that the PROCESS of creating art is the most important aspect of the work, and that each and every
student enjoyed taking part in the Festival. Thank you to all
participating teachers and students, and to our judges who spent many long hours marking the entries. We are grateful to Innscor Africa Ltd for their sponsorship of this festival and are deeply indebted to Hartmann House for allowing us the use of the Jubilee Hall for the exhibition of work that received an Honours or First Grade. A special thank you to the NIAA team for their hard work in making it all happen.
