As we know Hugh went on to be perhaps South Africa’s most internationally famous band leader, trumpeter and jazz pioneer. At the memorial service for Fr Huddleston, held at the Market Theatre, Joburg in 1998 Hugh Masekela presented a young trumpeter with a brand new trumpet in Huddleston’s name. In Sophiatown today we support emerging talent – music, dance, art, design, theatre and photography to name a few of the disciplines. But at the heart of it is the music.
We are all about young people, sharing stories and working together to make a better South Africa. Here's a story about Fr Huddleston that inspires us:
