Rehearsal: RADIO CLASSICS

Most of us agree that the choice of music on radio stations in Cape Town is pretty sad. After much frustration and searching the airwaves in my car without cd player, I dial in 104.9fm whenever I can get a signal! Heart fm is known for playing classics and old favourites, perfect for singing along to in the car.

Some of you will already know about Clarence Ford’s show on a Sunday evening at 6pm. He calls it ‘Me Time’ and plays classics such as:

‘With a little help from my friends’ – Joe Cocker

‘Moon River‘ – Andy Williams

‘There’s a kind of hush’ – Engelbert Humperdinck

‘Chestnuts roasting on an open fire’ – Johnny Mathis

‘I write the songs’ – Barry Manilow

…and those are just a few from last night’s show.

Clarence Ford, Alistair Izobell and superbly talented performers & musicians are bringing you a LIVE version of ‘Clarrie’s Favourites’. RADIO CLASSICS will be at the Baxter Theatre from 22 November 2012 until 5 January.  This is Radio in 3D! You won’t want to miss the costumes, sets, glitter and beautiful lighting in the Baxter’s Main Theatre.

I was lucky enough to sneak in during their first week of rehearsals and Nur Abrahams’ vocal stylings already had everyone falling off their chairs in excitement.

Performers on stage include: Clarence Ford, Alistair Izobell, Nur Abrahams, Edith Plaatjies and Aleshia Solomons

Supported by the magnificient band:

Don-veno Prins – Musical Director & saxophone
Trevino Isaacs – keyboards
Keagan Links– drummer
Jason De Laney – guitar
Brandon Ruiters – trumpet
Trombone – Murray Buitendag
Charlton Daniels – bass guitar

Ticket prices range from: R125 to R150

If you book early, there are low price previews: 22nd, 23rd and 24th Nov with all seats at R110.

This would be a great way to spend  New Years Eve!
