Award-winning young South African baritone, Johannes Slabbert, and virtuoso clarinetist, Junnan Sun, will join forces at Nederburg on Sunday 27 September.

Both musicians are winners of national music competitions presented by the Afrikaanse Taal- en Kultuurvereniging (ATVK). In 2014, Slabbert was announced as winner of ATKV Muziqanto, a national classical music competition for young adult singers, and in 2015, Sun was announced as the overall winner of ATKV Muziq, a national classical music competition for young adult instrumentalists.

The audience can look forward to a delightful programme of music performed by two exceptionally gifted young artists. Johannes Slabbert will sing a selection of German lieder, an aria from Rossini’s opera The Barber of Seville, popular Afrikaans songs, as well as timeless melodies such as Music of the Night and Some enchanted Evening.
