Shine : A Musical Extravaganza

Shine

School concerts are pretty special events to attend regardless of your age. They are events where so many dreams yet to be fulfilled are often birthed and imagined. A breeding ground for the world’s future artists, a place where so many of our industries leading musicians first discovered their love for their craft.

This was the impetus that inspired Natalie Rungan to calendar the event and write the theme song for Shine. “I wanted to create a platform where students who are gifted in music will be able to do just that … to sing, play their instruments in front of an audience and basically to Shine as musicians. Music students are very special, even peculiar, and many of them are complete introverts who don’t necessarily thrive in performances that require them to act or dance.”

This year will be the first year of “Shine” hosted at Durban High School’s DC Thompson Hall on 25 April at 6pm. The concert will showcase both individuals and groups of music students who have been trained at the Chris Seabrooke Music Centre, and in collaboration with Durban Girls’ High School Music students under the leadership of Miss Melindie Pretorius.
