Classic Blast!


Our new Chris Seabrooke Music Centre, which opened in October last year under the leadership of renowned Durban jazz singer – Natalie Rungan, will now also be the new home for the KZN Youth Orchestra.
The KZNYO is a non-profit making organisation which consists of talented, young musicians between the ages of 12 and 22 from all around KZN province. They meet once a week on Friday afternoons to rehearse and make music together. Over the last four years the KZNYO has toured to Germany, the Stellenbosch International Chamber Music Festival, the Grahamstown National Arts Festival and in 2016 performed a number of concerts around the province including two incredible collaborations with the Drakensberg Boys Choir.

On Friday 17 February the KZNYO will perform their first public concert for this year at their new home venue, DHS, and will be joined by the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra. This is the first time in a decade that the two orchestras have performed together. Both orchestras will perform separately and then join together to create one large orchestra of over 100 people. The programme will be varied to include favourite classics such as “Eine Kleine Nacht Musik” and the theme from “Swan Lake” and some contemporary jazzy items such as “What a wonderful world” and “Brazil” thus showing the versatility of modern orchestras. As February is seen as the month of romance, Natalie Rungan will perform “I’ve got you under my skin” and “One Moment in Time” with the KZNPO which will be an added delight.
The concert will be held in the Hall at DHS in St Thomas Road, Musgrave, on Friday, 17 February 6.30pm. It will be an hour long. Tickets will be R40 and a discount of R30 will be offered for pensioners and scholars respectively and will be available at the door 45 minutes before the concert.
This is a musical experience not to be missed! For more information contact Cathy on tel. 0823498362.
