People of Note - Jaco Griessel

The seminal masterpiece by Tennessee Williams, “The Glass Managerie”, has received rave reviews for its production at the Artscape Arena. It is directed by Fred Abrahamse who commissioned a special music score for the production from the young South African musician and composer, Jaco Griessel. The result is haunting music for a solo cello through the play. Jaco works as a music director, pianist, guitarist and production designer and he has won numerous awards including the Mandela-Rhodes Scholarship.
