CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR (article first published : 2006-12-4)

Celebrating the Christmas Holiday Season, Christmas Spectacular is a new variety show presented at the Hilton College Theatre.

Following many requests for a traditional variety performance with a seasonal flavour, Christmas Spectacular will include a selection of performances by local and visiting artists offering a widely varied programme of song, dance, carols and entertaining musical items.

Those taking part include the Maritzburg Singers, popular brass quintet Brass Flair from the KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra featuring trumpets, trombone, French horn and tuba, soloists from the Maritzburg College Choir and dance items.

In addition, acclaimed local pianist Christopher Duigan will be joined on stage by the celebrated Johannesburg -based baritone Federic Freschi and visiting London-based classical saxophonist, Joanne Rozario. The audience will be invited to join in the singing of carols.

Weather permitting, those attending the performance are invited to bring a picnic basket to enjoy on the spacious lawns in front of the theatre before the performance. If the weather still stays good, carols by candlelight led by the brass ensemble will continue after the performance on the lawn for those who wish to stay on.

Christmas Spectacular will be presented at the Hilton College Theatre on December 11 at 19h00. Tickets R70 (R40 children under 12). Seating is allocated and booking is essential through Hilton College Theatre on 033 383 0126.
