Carol Thorns at On Broadway

Carol Thorns

Do yourself a favour and get down to On Broadway (44 Long Street) this Sunday and watch Carol Thorns perform.  Ahead of debuting at the world famous Edinburgh Festival in August the CODA band member is giving her Mother City fans a sneak preview of her show ‘Red Cello Electrified’ at On Broadway this Sunday (July 25th 2010).

Carol is South Africa’s premier electric cellist and transforms traditional cello music, taking it to a new dimension which is both aurally and visually exciting but Carol and her red cello (hence the name of the show!) still retain the richness and beauty of the cello’s classical origins.

Carol received a South African Music Award nomination for Best Instrumental Album this year and the Red Cello Electrified show is based on that album; ‘Fireflies in the Rain’.  Having already been well received in India and the Middle East, Carol is renowned as a pioneer in the electric strings genre.

As a graduate of Rhodes University in Grahamstown, Carol has been performing for over a decade both solo and with her band CODA.  She has also worked with other South African artists such as Louise Carver, Arno Carstens and the Soweto String Quartet.  She has also appeared at many top society functions including the Elton John Charity Ball and SA Fashion Week.  Capetonians have been privileged enough to see her at the Kirstenbosch Summer Concert Series.

You can be assured that the show will be electrifying and something that you probably haven’t seen before – I definitely have never seen a red cello!  The show begins at 8.30pm and is on for one hour.  Luckily enough On Broadway is a dinner and theatre venue so dinner will be served at 6.30pm before Carol performs – sounds like a great Sunday evening to me!

Tickets are on sale for R65 – please contact 021 424 1194 for more information.
