UP BEAT (article first published : 2005-04-8)

Kearsney College will present their autumn music festival, Up Beat - a weekend of eclectic music, great food and crafts- in the gracious college grounds from May 27 to 29.

On May 27, Ian von Memerty’s delicious display of musical wit and dexterity can be seen in his much acclaimed Handful of Keys.

The highlight on May 28 is acclaimed Durban music impresario, Evan Roberts’s new rock and roll show featuring a carefully-chosen mix of close harmony 50's swing and rock and roll favourites.

Aaron McIlroy’s hilarious one-hander comedy The Loser takes place on May 29 at 11h00 and in the early afternoon, there will be a proms concert featuring an accessible line up of leisurely Sunday afternoon light classical music on the beautiful lawns at the College.

Maestro Chris Duigan will once again have a Music Revival Series of Concerts on campus for the discerning musical enthusiast featuring some of the region’s top classically-trained musicians in an interesting musical mix of new music, baroque and classics.

There will be a huge tent on the lawns this year with a selection of food stalls offering tasty autumn cuisine from butternut soup to hearty meals – to afternoon nibbles perfect for Proms Cuisine. There will be a stage in the tent where various performers will entertain festival enthusiasts – including Lounge Act (Sunday at 12h00) also emerging soft rock band Deluxe and a showcase of some of the school’s many talented musicians. The idea is to embrace the crisp early days of winter – so on offer will be lots of “warm” music; red wine; open braziers; hot-chocolate and marshmallows.

As well as the delicious music, there will be a craft market, a visual art display and plenty of fortifying liquid refreshment accompanied by mellow music and lots of buskers. A highlight is an exhibition by acclaimed artist Martin Wendiku.

Tickets from Computicket or 011 340 8000 or 083 915 8000. There is ample and safe parking. A full programme can be obtained from Computicket outlets or visit www.kearsney.com or www.computicket.com
