PALINDROMIC CONCERT (article first published : 2002-02-7)

For those unfamiliar with the term, a palindrome is something that reads the same backwards as forwards. The most famous palindrome is a quote from Napoleon Bonaparte who is supposed to have said “Able was I ‘ere I saw Elba.”

In February, a palindromic moment will take place at precisely two minutes past eight (ie 20h02) on February 20 (ie 20.02) in the year 2002 – ie 20.02 20.02 2002. This is a phenomenon that will only happen once this century. The last time it took place would have been on November 11, 1111 and the next time it happens will be December 21, 2112.

To celebrate this special moment Southern Suns Hotels, Co-Ordinated Agendas and well-known singer Mim Erasmus, whose very name is a palindrome, will present a Gala Charity Concert and Party.

MIM Day will take place on February 20 at the Holiday Inn, North Beach, Durban (formerly the Maharani) with the proceeds going to The Leopard Kingdom Foundation. Local performers appearing will be Mim Erasmus; Colin Penn; Frank Graham; Caroline Smart, Peter Gardner and Rosalie Howard; Dave Marks and Alan Judd; Ellis Pearson; Keith MacFarlane; Fiona Tozer and friends; Trevor Yates; Adi Paxton and the Natal Dixies. There will also be Irish, Indian and Spanish dancers as well as Floral Art performed to music.

Tickets R50 excluding drinks and snacks from 031 702-2043 or e-mail: rosaliehoward@mweb.co.za
