RISING STARS (article first published : 2002-11-25)

Friends Of Music will present a programme titled KZN Rising Stars at the Durban Jewish Club, Old Fort Road, on December 3 at 19h45. This concert presents a host of outstanding young performers from Pietermaritzburg and Durban.

Pianist Bruce Williams will perform Chopin’s Ballade No. 1, G minor, followed by soprano Claire Butcher who will sing works by Mozart and Hagemann as well as the traditional Havah Nagilah. Amanda Hardy then performs piano works by Rachmaninov and Barber, Kathleen Clay plays a violin piece by Wieniawsky and saxophonist Brent Black closes the first half of the programme with a work by Amy Quate.

Opening the second part of the programme will be soprano Ronette Bodenstein singing works by Pergolesi, Grieg and Bizet. Claire Wright follows, performing piano pieces by Rachmaninov and Brahms. Flautist Madeleine Shama will play Concertino by Cecile Chaminade. Ending the evening will be pianist Keshree Pillay with Castilla (Sequidillas) Op. 47 No. 7 by Albeniz followed by Berkeley’s Palm Court Waltz which she will perform with her younger sister Merushka Pillay.

Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, Friends of Music offer a ten minute slot in their concert programme to up-and-coming young talent who might not normally have access to such performance platforms. The Prelude Performers play prior to the main highlight of the concert and several of the Rising Stars artists took part in this highly successful programme during the year.

Appearing in the Prelude Performer slot on December 3 will be the Ningizimu School’s Steel Drum Band led by Sizwe Ngcobo.

Booking for the concert is at Computicket. The Durban Jewish Club is situated in Old Fort Road and there is safe parking. A cash bar is available.
