CAT-A-DOGUE (article first published : 2007-10-31)

A unique and innovative musical event in aid of the Pietermaritzburg SPCA is set to entertain local audiences this weekend. Titled Cat-a-Dogue, this sequence of performances by the Maritzburg Singers, baritone John Butler and acclaimed concert pianist Christopher Duigan includes many popular favourites that will appeal to a wide audience.

Popular songs performed by John Butler includes If I were A Rich Man and You Raise me Up while The Maritzburg Singers offer a selection from their forthcoming show of musicals titled Showstoppers due for production later in November. This includes a West Side Story selection, Canít Help Loving That Man, Seventy Six Trombones and a popular Andrew Lloyd Webber Medley.

The choir features soloists Basil Munro, Sibonelo Mbanjwa and Wendy Jones in selected items. Pianist Christopher Duigan plays a fun selection for the occasion, including Flight of the Bumblebee, Kitten on the Keys and Chopinís Minuteí Waltz, composed in 1847 after the composer was amused watching his dog chase its tail.

Generously sponsored by Parklane Super Spar, the fundraising concert takes place at Cordwalles School on November 3 at 19h00. Tickets R75 pp include complimentary sherry on arrival, substantial snacks and wine and soft drinks at interval, provided by Parklane Super Spar. Parking is secure.
