They will peform at the Summer Night Concert and Festival to be held at the Borrowdale Racecourse on September 30. The four, who are the members of Gaabo Motho (where one belongs) are Tebogo Makgwe, Mmusi Morekhure, Thabiso Masemene and Phenye Modiane. They all studied opera at the Vocal Arts Department of Tshwane University of Technology in Pretoria and have been performing together since 2006.
Gaabo Motho performed a special 2010 World Cup song, The Beautiful Game, at a function in Düsseldorf, Germany and then sang the South African national anthem in the stadium in Leverkusen before a soccer match between Germany and South Africa’s Bafana Bafana.
They have also sung at many commercial, charity and corporate concerts in South Africa, Uganda and Germany and their objective is to provide quality entertainment that will appeal to a wide audience.
Event organiser Minky Walters of Sound Event Management said the occasion would be spiced by numerous fun games. “At the Harare event, wine and food tasting will precede the concert, which starts at 7pm.
Wines and gourmet foods will be on sale for those not attending the wine and food tasting and no private food or drinks may be brought to the event,” said Walters.
“We encourage people to bring blankets and or chairs and the seating arrangements will have an area reserved for those sitting on the grass and an area behind that for camping chairs.”
He said tickets to the show are limited and encouraged people to book their places in the concert in advance. “Advance booking is recommended for the festival and concert as tickets are limited.
Tickets are on sale at the Sound Event Management box office, located in the DStv retail shop at PaSangano, Avondale. Tickets will also be available from the gate on the day, with gates open from 3.30pm. The festival and pre-shows start at 4pm.”
