GEORGIE SHIELDS HEADS OUT (article first published : 1999-12-3)

At a function this evening to thank the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra for its hard work and contribution to the music scene in Durban and KZN, NBS corporate head Georgie Shields announced that she would be leaving the organisation early in the new year to go overseas.

“I think it’s time to move on and look for new challenges,” says this diminutive ever-gracious woman who has been a prime mover in getting the KZNPO “out to the people.” Living proof that you can combine charm and a smart business brain without comprise, she is committed to supporting the arts in all their disciplines. On behalf of the NBS, she recently presented Nhlanhla Ben Nsusha’s work Play That Tune My Fohlosa to the Durban Art Gallery’ for its permanent collection. One of her major success stories is the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra’s NBS Sunset Proms held regularly at Kingsmead Stadium. She is the prime mover behind the NBS sponsorship of the Playhouse Company’s Summer Stage bumper festive season.

The arts world will miss her bubbly personality as well as her commitment and calm efficiency. She’s headed for New York so, watch out, Big Apple!
