Fay Singer South African Jewish Music Centre Collection
In 2011 the collection of the South African Jewish Music Centre was donated to DOMUS by Mrs. Fay Singer, hence the Fay Singer South African Jewish Music Centre Collection. The South African Jewish Music Centre (SAJMC), in their aim to preserve the heritage of Jewish music in its South African context, has been active in promoting the study and performance of Jewish music. This took place by means of lectures, performances and the collecting of music materials. The material in this archive includes brochures, correspondence, newsletters, newspaper cuttings, notes, periodicals, posters, programmes, sheet music and sound recordings (mostly gramophone recordings of South African and international Jewish music) donated to the Centre by local synagogues, cantors and other individuals. Due to negotiations between former Stellenbosch University music student Annemie Stimie [Annemie Behr] and Fay Singer, the archive of the South African Jewish Music Centre was transferred to DOMUS.
