As we rise to the challenge of our new normal of life in a global pandemic, Joburg Theatre launches Jozi Food and Music Saturdays that will take place twice a month from Saturday, 4 September, 2021, with food and live music at Joburg Theatre’s Stages Restaurant in Braamfontein, Johannesburg.
The musical and food experience will kick off with this year’s spring and Heritage Month with a LIVE performance of a leading composer and bassist AusTebza and Neo Motsatse, a very talented young violinist with the award-winning vocalist Brenda Mtambo backed up by a talented pianist and arranger, Afzal Ismail and the talented Sims Tshabalala on drums.
Trailed by an electrifying October programming under the theme ‘Give Hope to Save Lives through music and food for Breast Cancer Month and Mental Awareness Month; the JOZI FOOD & MUSIC SATURDAYS will upward with celebrations leading to the November Disability Rights Awareness Month; and the 2021 programme will close off in December with phenomenal themes tied to World Diabetes Day, World AIDS Day and World Leprosy Day to be resumed again in 2022 with a Valentine’s Day celebration melody welcoming the new year.
‘We envision the Programming as a major part of the annual Joburg Theatre calendar, enabling the people of the city to enjoy their Saturdays meaningfully to uplifting and sustaining the social economy and helping artists during the COVID-19 challenging times’ said Xoliswa Nduneni-Ngema, Chief Executive officer at Joburg City Theatres.
This programming aims at growing a diverse and competitive growing economy that creates jobs, promote economic development and also attract investment to reduce unemployment in the Arts fraternity.
The fusion of music and food creates wellness in our day-to-day lives by helping us process our lives individually and allowing us to come together collectively and we hope that this initiative will generate positivity, appreciation and hope during COVID-19 times and beyond.
