Concert Postponed ‘til Father’s Day
Pop Opera Concert
With the
KZN Philharmonic Orchestra
with Natalie Rungan & Njabulo Nzuza
KZN Youth Wind Band.
Glenwood High School Dixon’s Field: now Sunday 19 June
Doors open 2pm / concert starts 3pm
Severe storm warnings, widespread rain and cold weather across Durban and KZN have been predicted for this weekend, prompting the organisers of the Pop Opera concert to postpone the concert due to take place this Sunday afternoon on the fields of Glenwood High School.
It has been rescheduled for the same time now for Father’s Day, Sunday 19 June 2022.
This event, due to take place on Glenwood High School Dixon’s Field was to feature the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra, with soloists Natalie Rungan and Njabulo Nzuza, and the KZN Youth Wind Band. The concert will now be crafted around a Father’s Day theme.
“All weather reports indicate we are in for a rainy and cold weekend – not ideal for an outdoor music concert! The sports grounds will be wet, which will be unpleasant for our guests. While we know this is hugely disappointing, we didn’t want a potentially fabulous afternoon of great music to be spoilt by the weather,” said producer, Darin Samuels.
“We have moved it to Father’s Day Sunday, 19 June. As we are being hosted by Glenwood Boys High, to offer something fun, engaging and accessible for the boys to do with their fathers and families on Father’s Day felt like an elegant solution. It is also the week of Youth Day too, which is a fitting time to honour our young performers – the KZN Youth Wind Band,” said Samuel. “We invite all Durbanites – young and old, and especially Fathers, to spend Sunday 19 June with us.”
The Siza Foundation, the proactive CSI hub of The Durban based Samuels Group – key players in the logistics, sales and marketing of petroleum related products and vehicle servicing industry in South Africa – is hosting the event as part of their arts support programme.
Samuels have put together a bumper afternoon musical programme to be enjoyed by the whole family, on the spacious Glenwood High fields.
Two acts are on the programme the KZN Youth Wind Band and the mighty KZN Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of resident conductor, Lykele Temmingh. Soloists are Natalie Rungan and Njabulo Nzuza. The orchestra will be performing a programme of light classics; catchy pop; hits from the musicals and some jazz fusion.
One of South Africa’s premier youth ensembles, the KZN Youth Wind Band is made up of young musicians between the ages of 13 and 27, many from previously disadvantage backgrounds. It is considered one of South Africa’s finest symphonic concert bands. Conducted by Russell Scott, the band has a varied repertoire of classic symphonic band pieces, as well as swing, pop, and film music, not to mention a fantastic real South African repertoire!
