Welcome to the DOMUS guide where you'll find information on all music special collections.
The Documentation Centre for Music (DOMUS) is located in the Music Library, Stellenbosch University. DOMUS collections are mostly of South African importance, yet also of international significance.
We house close to 70 collections of South African composers, performers, researchers and music societies. Please see 'Collections' for an overview of our collections.
This presentation features documents from the collection of accordionist and composer Nico Carstens.
Unpacking the John Roos collection
John Roos (1946-2018) was coordinator of Unisa Music Foundation’s music tuition projects, served on board of STTEP outreach programme to learners from Mamelodi and Atteridgeville and acted as juror at national and international music competitions.
Clay tablets from this collection represent performances at the Tauromenium concert venue at his home, and are on display in the SU Music Library foyer.
The collection was donated by the Roos family, in collaboration with the Africa Open Institute.
