10th BIRTHDAY DINNER (article first published : 2007-09-20)

Celebrating a highly successful 10 years of music-making in Pietermaritzburg, Music Revival has come up with a special event in the form of a 10th Birthday Dinner.

Presenting a concert in grand style, Baroque 2000 will perform music from opera, overtures and ballets of the French Courts of the 17th century including music by Jean Philippe Rameau from Dardanus and Les Indes Galantes and Jean Baptiste Lully from Alceste and Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme. This Baroque ensemble of 17 players - strings section together with flutes, trumpets, harpsichord and timpani - are conducted by visiting French master François-Xavier Roth. Rated as one of the most exciting young conductors in the world, Roth conducted the KZNPO in their London performance at the Barbican Hall several years back.

Guests at this extraordinary party will enjoy dinner platters and complimentary wine courtesy of Parklane Super Spar followed by a Music Revival selection of new and current programmes performed by the Kerimov Trio, Joanne Rozario on saxophone and baritone Federico Freschi with Christopher Duigan at the piano. With a fun party atmosphere of South American tangos ( including elections from Tango Fire!) and passionate operatic melodies, this selection provides an earthy contrast to the regal tones of the Baroque orchestra.

Generously supported by Parklane Super Spar, Music Revival’s 10th Birthday Dinner takes place on September 22 at 19h00 at the Cultural Centre, Maritzburg College. Seating is at tables of 10 and places are definitely limited. Book early to avoid disappointment. Tickets at R150 pp includes two performances, dinner platters and two complimentary bottles of wine per table. There will be a cash bar.

Booking essential through Music Revival on 033 342-3051 or e-mail: booking@musicrevival.co.za
