Kirstenbosch concert a big success

Soweto Gospel ChoirMesmerising: The Soweto Gospel Choir kept the audience on their feet at the annual RAG Kirstenbosch Concert on 27 February.

It was all perfect at this year's annual UCT RAG (Remember and Give) Kirstenbocsh Concert on 27 February. The weather was fine, the stage looked wonderful and the performers were nothing short of brilliant, leaving the audience begging for more.

The Rudimentals got the event off to a great start, pulling the crowd to move to right in front of the stage to join in the dancing. When the main course was dished in the form of the two-time Grammy-award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir, the audience burst into cheers.

Their earthy rhythms, rich harmonies, a capella numbers, alongside energetic dancing and vibrant, colourful costumes, made for an awesome mix. All was for a good cause as the Old Mutual-sponsored concert allowed RAG to raise money for SHAWCO's outreach programmes.

The concert is the only RAG project that targets both students and families around Cape Town, given the relaxed, classy nature of the event. UCT RAG 2009/2010 Chairperson Aliyah Allie said what she loved about the event was that the vibey audience was a wonderful mix of young and old, of different income levels and colour, all dancing, singing and picnicking together - as was intended when the vision for the event was created.
