The Drakensberg Boys Choir perform at uShaka Marine World this weekend
There doesn’t seem to be much rugby on the box this weekend and Sharks and Western Province fan take a break before the Currie Cup Final next weekend so if you are in the coastal city of Durban and haven’t made any plans for Friday or Saturday night count yourself very lucky and get yourself to Computicket as soon as possible.
This weekend the skies above uShaka Marine World will be alive with the sounds of music as some of KwaZulu Natal’s best known performers; the Drakensberg Boys Choir and the Seaworld Dolphins unite for their first ever joint musical extravaganza at uShaka Marine World’s Dolphinarium!
Hailing from the beautiful Champagne Valley in the Central Drakensberg, the Drakensberg Boys Choir has an international reputation. Keep your ears open for a selection from its unique repertoire which includes rock, pop, jazz and folk music. Classics like Handel’s ‘Messiah’, Mozart’s ‘Requiem’, Bernstein’s ‘Chichester Psalms’ and Bach’s ‘Magnificat’ as well as unique African compilations accompanied by African instruments and percussion.
The stars in the water are SeaWorld’s finned diva’s; Afrika, Tombi, Khanya and Zulu and showmen Kelpie, Jula, Khwezi and Ingelosi. The show stealer though will be the solo from Gambit, the largest bottlenose dolphin in any oceanarium in the world!
Concert Details & Tickets:
Tickets for this exciting, unique, fun filled show are available from Computicket at a cost of R100 for adults and R75 for children which includes a complimentary bottle of Coca-Cola from the shows sponsors!
The performance kicks off at 7pm and if you ask me its rather lucky that the rugby is only next weekend; choosing between seeing Gambit in solo action or the Sharks up against Western Province could be a difficult choice!
So get yourself to Computicket and make sure you don’t miss out on what promises to be a wonderful performance from both dolphin divas, salty showmen and the very talented boys of the Drakensberg Boys Choir.
