The Event

OCTOBER IS MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH. Andre Strijdom has very kindly made his brilliant composition, Suiderkruismis, available to raise awareness and raise funds for community mental health care in the Helderberg basin. This vibrant concert will take place on Saturday evening 13 October at Lourensford Estate, Somerset West. One night only.

Andre Strijdom based his composition, Suiderkruismis, on the five parts of the traditional Catholic Mass. It combines popular genres to celebrate multicultural South Africa. The Mass is sung in English, Latin, Afrikaans, and various African languages. This masterful work is layered with textures of authentic and classical voices, supported by orchestral as well as electric rock instruments. This year the Suiderkruismis ensemble is being joined by the colourful Holy Voices Choir from Asanda Village in Zola. It is a true ubuntu experience that aims to encourage collaborative ventures and raise spirits - which it most certainly will.


To make the event even more spectacular Lourensford Estate has offered to host this concert in their famous Wine Cellar. This in itself is a unique privilege not many are ever fortunate to experience! Thank you Lourensford Estate! Wine will be on sale before and after the show while we all get to know each other better. You can also call 021 847 0030 in advance to place an order from the pizzeria or make a table booking at the Millhouse Restaurant.


Please note that seating for the concert is Unreserved, and there is regrettably no wheelchair access due to the staircase down into the wine cellar.


KINDLY BRING SOME EXTRA CASH TO SUPPORT OUR VERY WORTHY HELDERBERG COMMUNITY CAUSES. THE HOLY VOICES CHOIR WILL HAVE THEIR CD'S ON SALE AND THERE WILL BE RAFFLES FOR COMPLIMENTARY SPA DAYS AND WINE TOO.
