Sappi-Lowvelder Mother’s Day Concert
Sunday May 8, 2016
It is going to be the celebration of two of the Lowveld’s largest companies, and it is also going to be a Mother’s Day concert you will never forget!
This year’s Sappi/Lowvelder Mother’s Day concert will be held in the Lowveld National Botanical Garden (LNBG) on May 8. The event also creates an ideal opportunity for Sappi, which is celebrating its 80th birthday and Lowvelder, celebrating its 130th year of business, to give back to the community. And what better way than to make this the annual concert a special one?
Planning for the event started at the end of 2015 and behind the scenes a lot of effort is going into the preparations to ensure the event’s success.
Apart from making Mother’s Day special, it also creates an opportunity for everyone to explore the beauty of the Lowveld National Botanical Garden and raise funds for it.
The programme has been planned and the crowd can look forward to the performance of the University of Pretoria Symphony Orchestra (UPSO) and Symphonic Winds (UPSW), both entities of the Department of UP Arts. Both ensembles showcase a unique repertoire and have a diverse array of participants. The ensembles are well known for a repertoire that encapsulates all facets of music, including western art music and world music. The orchestra and wind band provides a platform for the University of Pretoria’s finest soloists, instrumentalists, singers, students and professionals, to showcase their talent.
Children are going to love the outing and parents will be able to relax while their young ones are entertained in the exciting kiddies area. The park-and-ride will be up and running from early Sunday morning and the arrangements will be communicated before the event.
Save the date! You don’t want to miss out on the 2016 concert.
