Fiesta time!

It is Fiesta time at the Linder Auditorium! Following on from the success of the 2017 inaugural event, this year's programme is bigger and better than before with a mix of previous favourites, new highlights and selected highly accomplished guest artists.

The programme ranges from Mozart's Piano Concerto No 21 to a Star Wars medley of hits, with everything in between including repertoire from the Jeppe Girls Choir's recent gold award winning performance at the World Choir Games and a tribute to Nelson Mandela.

Pianist Elize Kruger and soloists Timothy Moloi and Candis Angelene are featured, along with the Jeppe Pipe Band (playing Highland Cathedral), the Jeppe Girls Choir and Orchestra conducted by Johan Bester and Andrew Pallett and the Jeppe Hlabelela and Marimba ensembles - all accompanied by the Johannesburg Festival Orchestra and conducted by our favourite maestro, Richard Cock.

Celebrity Jeppe Old Girl, Carolyn Steyn of the 67 Blankets for Mandela campaign will also perform as a guest conductor.

The concert is dedicated to Jeppe alumna, Ruth First, in aid of the Foundation created in her memory which currently sponsors 55 girls at Jeppe High School for Girls. All funds raised will go to help change the life trajectories of the scholarship recipients forever - what could be a more worthy cause than that?

Tickets cost R210 - R270 and are on sale at Computicket for the show on Friday 31 August at 19:30. Please join us for an evening of black and white pride, as we celebrate the musical talent of our Jeppe family and friends on the big stage.
