Jimmy Dludlu to perform in Cape Town
Jimmy Dludlu will perform at the UCT Alumni Concert on Thursday
South African guitar legend Jimmy Dludlu is among the musicians performing at this year’s University of Cape Town (UCT) Alumni Concert on Thursday, August 13.
The concert, held to celebrate the excellence of UCT’s South African College of Music alumni and acknowledge their contribution to the music industry and their communities, will feature performances by UCT alumni and multi-award winning musicians Jimmy Dludlu, Nina Schumann, Melanie Scholtz, Pretty Yende and Mike Campbell, as well as the UCT Big Band.
The Alumni Concert was initiated three years ago to honour South African College of Music graduates and to raise funds for music bursaries.
The concert provides an opportunity for alumni to give back and develop their communities. Selaelo Selota, Judith Sephuma, Sibongile Mngoma and Francois du Toit are just some of the top musicians who have performed at previous concerts.
The concert will take place on Thursday, August 13 at 8pm at the Baxter Hall.
Tickets are available from the Baxter Box Office (021 685 7880), Computicket, Shoprite, Checkers and Pick n Pay outlets.
Tickets cost R120. UCT staff, students and alumni can buy tickets for R100 from the Baxter Box Office.
