Festival Of Love

Bobby van Jaarsveld
With "A festival of Love" as its theme, Suidoosterfees 2012, which takes place at Artscape in February, promises a line-up filled with love – a love for the arts, for family, for loved ones and life. Famous musical favourites such as Rocco de Villiers, Auriol Hays, Ringo Madlingozi, the Delft Big Band and Cape Town’s famous drag queen Odidiva will delight audiences with stunning performances. Fans of 2011’s Huisgenoot Gospelkonsert should take note of the next installment, featuring Juanita du Plessis, Romanz, Rouchelle Liedemann, the SA Youth Choir, Ivan Swiegelaar, Bobby van Jaarsveld, Trevor Sampson, Joe Niemand, Riana Nel, Matthys Maree and his band. Add to this fabulous line-up the superb third SOF Klassiek concert with upcoming young stars Friedel Mitas (soprano), Ryan van der Rheede (trombone) and Megan-Geoffrey Prins (pianist). The Suidoosterfees also brings brand new theatre works to the stage. Last but not least, free top class entertainment is on the menu in Die Burger/RSG Tent where upcoming Capetonian singers will be providing musical entertainment daily from 17 till 19 February. Tickets for Suidoosterfees productions are available at Computicket. Also visit www.facebook.com/Suidoosterfees and www.twitter.com/Suidoosterfees_ for festival news.
