Aviva Pelham is to perform in Santa’s Story at the Fugard Theatre - a one-woman show about the life of her Mother, Santa Pelham, from August 29 to September 9,2012.

When 90-year-old Santa Pelham was persuaded to write her fascinating life story it was intended so that her memoir would be there for future generations. But Santa's story became something more, a cathartic experience, an inspiration for song, and now a one-woman show performed by her daughter, opera diva Aviva Pelham.

Aviva brings the moving text to life detailing her mother’s journey from Germany, to Spain, to France and then to Africa. The story is punctuated by wonderful live Klezmer music performed by the arranger Matthew Reid on clarinet and sax, Nicky Jansen on keyboard, guitar, flute, accordion and sax and Petri Salonen on the violin. The beautiful instrumentation will depict music from different part of Europe and Klezmer and Aviva will sing in Spanish, French, Yiddish, Hebrew and English.

In a career spanning almost 40 years, Aviva has enchanted her audiences, brightened stages and spread the love of song in South Africa and abroad. She is a highly sought-after singer, director and lecturer. Born into an extremely musical family in Zimbabwe, her home was filled with music and every member of the family sang. In addition to opera, teaching and performing qualifications, she obtained a master's degree from University of Cape Town. Since making her debut in the role of Norina from Don Pasquale she has performed extensively on local and international stages, television and radio. She has worked

The Quadrant – Claremont’s ‘work, live and play’ precinct bordering Wilderness and Main Roads (close to Kingsbury Hospital) and adjoining the Claremont Library – recently unveiled its new Saturday market.

The Quadrant, which is fast becoming one of the most sought after residential, health-zone and office node has opened its adjoining Library Square to speciality traders.

And the organisers are welcoming all to share in the markets bounty.

Stalls are set up on the leafy Library Square which forms part of the precinct, and patrons have the choice of a wide variety of items for sale.  These include fresh farm produce, freshly baked breads, artisan goods, boutique wines, homemade preserves, olives, gourmet food, seasonal items, crafts, artwork from local artists and plants & herbs.

Members of the public are also invited to simply soak up the atmosphere of the vibrant market or to enjoy some refreshments at A Tavola restaurant and Café Nood that also form part of the precinct.
