August 12: Winter Midweek Session with the TwoPianists Piano Duo

12 August, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

R80 - R100

MIDWEEK SESSIONS – SPECIAL WINTER SESSION WITH THE TWOPIANISTS PIANO DUO
The Church on Greenmarket Square has become a popular concert ‘hot-spot’ for its special ambiance and excellent acoustics. With well-lit parking on the square outside and coffee and refreshments on sale inside, as well as a host of restaurants and bars within walking distance, it is a perfect all round concert venue. Midweek Sessions consists of two contrasting concerts on one night – a classical mix for the first half and jazz /blues for the second, but during the winter months concert presenter Louise Howlett is presenting single sessions running from 7.30 to 9pm focussing on some of Cape Town’s finest musicians

August 12th will feature the acclaimed piano duo Nina Schumann and Luis Magalhães who will be bringing their own grand pianos to the church and celebrating 15 years of marriage, partnership and musical creativity with the launch of their new CD called American Intersections. This concert is their only Cape Town performance which is part of a national tour taking place over the next few weeks.

The husband-and-wife duo has been compared to the fabled piano duos of Ashkenazy-Previn and Argerich-Freire by the American Record Guide and they have toured extensively throughout Europe and America. As the couple met in America is seems appropriate that American Intersections includes works by American composers such as Samuel Barber, Aaron Copland and John Adams. These works portray America as a melting pot of musical cultures, a crossroads of musical traditions, and a colourful tapestry of diverse sounds.

Tickets available in advance directly from info@louisehowlett.co.za / 084 682 1337 and on the night at the door from 7pm priced R100 and R80 for students & pensioners. (special student block booking prices are also available)

Delicious coffee and hot chocolate is served at the church to enjoy during the concert and a special discount is given by Bellini Italian on Greenmarket Square for supper before or after the concert – (just mention the concert when booking) and there is plenty of well lit parking available on the square from 6.30pm.

We are also initiating a ‘bring a blanket’ drive – bring a blanket to the concert to keep yourself warm and then donate it afterwards and the church will make sure it goes to a person in need during the cold winter nights.
