Valentine under the STARS set to return with star-studded performances
Valentine under the STARS, the elegant open-air concert hosted within Cape Town’s iconic Castle of Good Hope, returns for the second time on Valentine’s Day 2015.
On Saturday 14 February, internationally acclaimed musicians will perform alongside the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra to create a ‘classic-meets-pop’ concert filled with love and romance, all under the magnificent Cape Town night sky with Table Mountain as a backdrop.
Following the success of the inaugural concert which took place earlier last year, Valentine under the STARS 2015 will be bigger, better and even more magical. Performances will include internationally recognized South African soprano Magdalene Minnaar, who has entertained audiences across the globe with her exceptional voice.
Sharing the stage is Selim Kagee, South Africa’s premier classical crossover artist. With an amazing repertoire, Selim Kagee is renowned for performing classics and all time favourites.
An exciting addition to Valentine under the STARS is a unique performance that will introduce Sing the Change – an initiative by Laura Santoni that empowers youth via music and the arts.
The evening will be hosted by Katlego Maboe, host of magazine show Expresso.
Together with the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO), conducted by the highly acclaimed Brandon Philips, these performances will create a romantic, spellbound and unforgettable evening.
