Summer Sunday Jazz Concert Series

Moonshine

“In an age of digital synthesisers, sequencers and DJ's, Moonshine is a rarity - an exciting, polished band with an organic sound, led by saxophonist, Dan Shout, which features some of the hippest cats in the Cape Town music scene.

 Moonshine is jazz with a kick! The journey starts in the Roaring 20's Prohibition Era and takes the listener through the Swinging' 30's and 40's, ending with the classic rock 'n' roll sounds of the 1950's. In other words, expect to hear music from Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Nina Simone, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Dean Martin, right through to the rocking sounds of Chuck Berry, Big Joe Turner, Fats Domino, Elvis, Ray Charles and Marvin Gaye.

Featuring Ndumiso Manana and Amy Campbell on vocals

Adam Campbell - A Musical Journey

The ‘Musical voyage’ takes the audience to France for it’s first stop where the classical
saxophone started with a piece, Tableaux de Provence which is a collection of five
movements written by the French composer Paule Maurice, every movement bringing a
different aesthetic from the French traditional music. The next stop is in Australia with the
beautiful Melbourne Sonata showcasing the saxophonists ability to play for minutes on end without breathing! North America is the last stop before the interval with William Albright’s Sonate for saxophone and piano. This piece could be considered the most contemporary piece on the program but with all the American film influences Albright never strays very far from a beautiful melody, with the second movement often being cited as one of the most beautiful pieces of music written for the classical saxophone.

From North America the journey takes us down into South America and to non-other that
Astor Piazzolla and his Histoire du Tango originally written for flute and guitar but
transposed for soprano saxophone and piano. A prolific composer of the Argentinian Tango, Piazzolla has become a household name around the world and few of his pieces are more well- known than this suite of high-energy, contrasting tangos.

Across the ocean and the music takes us to Japan, a country with centuries of tradition
surrounding their music but with a 20th century fascination for western culture. The Fuzzy
Bird Sonate for alto saxophone and piano written by Takashi Yoshimatsu perfectly captures this genre of Japanese music with glimpses into the traditional music scene coupled with clear western influences. Should the audience wish to hear more music the musicians propose an encore, the beautiful and simple ‘Aria’ by Eugene Bozza creates a stunning contrast after the flamboyant concert!

Summer Sunday Jazz Concert Series

Zingara is a singer/songwriter residing in Cape Town.  She strives for authenticity in the music she creates. Life experiences are interwoven in her work, and reflect the daring, explorative style she pursues.
Zingara’s contemporary blend of Future-Jazz, Neo-Soul and Instrumental complexity offers a deep and new sound. Whichever name you choose to pin on the simultaneously smooth, soulful, nostalgic and fresh sound, her emerging and progressive approach to music has captured the attention of the music scene. Francesca Biancoli (Zingara) was born in Bari, a multi-cultured seaside town famous for its Greek, Arabic, and Turkish influences. Growing up with access to such rich and varied diversity helped inform her spontaneous and non-conformist musical path.
Playing with Francesca (voice/guitar) is Nicholas Williams (piano/keyboard), Ryan McArthur (bass) and Kurt Diedericks (drums).

Exploring basic art techniques through a variety of media, with the emphasis on developing art-making skills at your own pace. Acrylic and water-based paint and drawing materials, such as charcoal, pencil, ink, graphite and many other experimental and unconventional mixed media.

Aim of the workshop: We start by working with, and applying different media and doing a series of mixed-media exercises; then we create a mixed-media artwork, combining all or some of the media. In so doing, we learn, share and create together. Thus we push our own boundaries gently by exploring and awakening our inner creative world.
