Providing a platform for emerging South African musicians and musical ensembles to showcase their talent, up-and-coming artists will take to the V&A Amphitheatre stage from 7 to 8pm on select summer evenings, in a free-to-attend series of musical performances at the V&A Waterfront.
The first in a series of festive season–themed Take the Stage performances, the Salvation Army Brass Band will perform at the V&A Amphitheatre on Thursday, 21 December. With a vibrant musical tradition, the Salvation Army use their musicians to reach out to fellow young South Africans to address community issues such as drug addiction and poverty.
A little-known fact is that many well-known musicians have started their careers as members of the Salvation Army Band, including Hugh Masekela, Professor Mzilikazi Khumalo and the director of the South African Naval Band, Commander Kenny Liebbrandt!
