It’s a tradition that Capetonians have come to look forward to. The Cape Town International Jazz Festival’s ‘Free Community Concert’ will take place once again in the lovely confines of Green Market Square, in the heart of the city.
On Wednesday March 28, South African artist HHP will join American superstars Dave Koz, featuring Patti Austin, and Allen Stone on stage along with the Western Cape Education Department’s All Stars. For the first time on stage will be SphaMadelse, winner of the Open Mic sessions which were held at Grand West earlier this year
With the festival now sold out, music fans will still have an opportunity to see these jazz greats and experience a taste of The Cape Town International Jazz Festival. The free concert offers a great evening of music, including jazz and jazz fusion.
The concert starts at 5pm and will therefore encourage many city workers to remain in the city after work, avoiding the heavy homeward-bound traffic.
“We hope that people who do not work or live in the city will take this opportunity to experience the buzz of city life. It’s a great opportunity to stay on after work, enjoy the evening, and experience the vibe of the Jazz Festival. The Square has many busy pubs, restaurants, and hotels, and the free concert promises some great music echoing off the surrounding historic buildings,” said Andrew Boraine, CEO of the Cape Town Partnership.
Metrorail will be operating a free train service departing Cape Town Station at 11.30pm in the directionsof :Bellville, Heathfield, Kapteinsklip.
