Cape Town audiences are in for a treat when the multiple award-winning instrumental pop group Sterling EQ teams up with four of SA’s top instrumentalists for a celebration of all sounds instrumental

The acclaimed Sterling EQ has performed in 12 countries and to audiences of thousands since their formation in 2007, and is led by Carina Bruwer, acclaimed worldwide for her inspired and prolific flute playing, with ace violinist Luca Hart whose Grappelli-inspired improvisations has audiences in awe, and soulful cellist Ariella Caira who never fails to enchant with her stand-up cello.  The SAMA-winning trio is joined by acclaimed guitar player and composer Mauritz Lotz (nicknamed by the SA Rock Encyclopedia as “Guitar Hero Extraordinaire”), well-known pianist Jaconell Mouton, the one and only Schalk Joubert who is undoubtedly one of SA’s busiest and most recognisable bassists, and percussionist/drummer Kevin Gibson who – often together with Joubert – has shared stages with many musical legends locally and abroad.

The Jonny Cooper Big Band

30/11/2014

Consisting of four trumpets, four trombones, five saxophones and a rhythm section, the orchestra replicates the 1938 civilian orchestra of Glenn Miller.
The visual appeal of the Big Band is pushed to the hilt with waving trombones and shining trumpets moving in well drilled unison to drive home riffs of Miller favourites such as `In The Mood`, `Tuxedo Junction` and `Moonlight Serenade‘, to mention a few.

Cape Town Opera’s African Angels

05/12/2014
8:15 pm - 10:15 pm

Cape Town Opera’s African Angels returns to Oude Libertas after its sold out performance last season, and fresh from touring to 34 cities in Holland and Germany over the past year. In 2013, African Angels was created as a new South African-themed musical show that showcases the energetic and soulful sound and exuberant performances of our country’s choral singers. The 18-voice chorus is accompanied by piano and drum with a program of moving and uplifting African songs mixed with American gospel music – and of course, opera. Audiences are treated to the best of the Gershwins with “Summertime” and “I got plenty o’ nuttin’” from Porgy and Bess, traditional spirituals such as “The Battle of Jericho” and “Ol’ Time Religion” and classic opera choruses such as “Va Pensiero” from Nabucco and “Anvil Chorus” from Il Travatore. “The fact that each chorus member is a competent soloist only makes the experience more special, and it is heightened by their charming smiles and special talent for making great music seem so easy. One comes out of the concert with goose pimples all over.” – Die Kolner Stadt-Anzeiger, Germany (July 2014).
