Kunstreffers: Konsert van Hoop – a never before seen music and dance extravagance as part of the 14th Suidoosterfees on 27 April.
Headlining the bill are SA Idols Winner 2005 Karin Kortje, celebrated Afrikaans artists Coenie de Villiers and Karin Hougaard as well the legendary home-grown Langa artist Fancy Galada and indigenous music maestro Dizu Plaatjies among others. Winners of the Suidoosterfees Talent Search 2016 will share the stage with these stars while musical director maestro Janine Neethling will orchestrate the concert to a fine tune.
The production forms part of Artscape’s mandate as an agency of the Department of Arts and Culture to celebrate and commemorate national holidays of cultural and political significance in post-democratic South Africa. It forms part of the representation of our diverse cultures and living legends that deserves to be continuously honoured. It ties into the Suidoosterfees 2017 theme, “Legends” that seek to present an opportunity to honour celebrated South African artists from the classic genres through to jazz – celebrating our diverse cultures to proffer a platform of artistic expression for young, established and celebrated artists from diverse cultural backgrounds.
As City of Cape Town Executive Mayor, Patricia de Lille as one of the Suidoosterfees partners, promises in her festival foreword: “The Suidoosterfees never disappoints”. Neither will “Kunstreffers: Konsert van Hoop”.
Other artists on the bill include the Cape Town Opera Chorus, Cape Town City Ballet, the Hlanganani Marimba Orkes, Thalita Luiters., Unmute Dance Project and Jazzart Dance Company
