The local pianist and lecturer in piano at the NWU School of Music, Truida van der Walt, invited a dozen of her musical friends to perform with her in a concert of lighter fare with a touch of jazz. The concert will be presented in the Conservatory Hall on Tuesday 15 September 2015 at 19:30.
The programme includes delightful music for easy listening by the tango master, Astor Piazzolla, selections from Claude Bolling’s jazz suites for flute and trumpet, and songs by Jerome Kern (Smoke gets in your eyes, amongst others), George Gershwin (Summertime and Let’s call the whole thing off), Cole Porter (I get a kick out of you), and What a wonderful world by Bob Thiele.
Truida’s friends who will participate in these performances are: Alida Bester (double bass), Yvonne-Marié Brand (trumpet), Human Coetzee (cello), Tiaan Engelbrecht (guitar), George Fazakas (flute), Piet Koornhof (violin), Jana Mathee (soprano), Dirkie Nell (accordion), Antoinette Olivier (soprano), Justin Sasman (trombone), Jardus Smith (percussion) and GP van Rheede van Oudtshoorn (baritone).
