Proud sponsor of The Songbird Tour with Laura Burhenn

 

We are happy to announce that we, 10 2ND AVENUE HOUGHTON ESTATE, are  a proud sponsor of The Songbird Tour with Laura Burhenn, from The Mynabirds, Bright Eyes, The Postal Service, taking place 3-17 July 2014, in association with One Fine Day Music Company.

As part of the tour initiative, Laura will be collaborating with equally established homegrown songbirds (Inge Beckmann for the Cape Town performance, Shotgun Tori and Lucy Kruger for the Grahamstown performances, Faye Oakes in Durban and Eve Rakow in Johannesburg), as well as focusing on women from disadvantaged communities via a series of workshops in the areas she visits. This is part of a mentorship program in association with Lana Crowster, a graduate from the Africa Voices Trust.

The Songbird Tour will place an emphasis on celebrating the creative woman. It is aimed at being an exchange that serves as an interaction between established international artists, up and coming South African performers and local talent within disadvantaged communities.

 

The Mentorship Program

 

Lana Crowster and Laura Burhenn have selected two singers: Nomvuyo Manjati (Gugulethu) and Ayesha Madatt (Athlone) to join them on tour. These two talented, yet inexperienced, stage performers are currently being trained by Lana Crowster to perform alongside Laura on tour. Once Laura Burhenn arrives in Cape Town she will focus on intensive workshop sessions for 3 days prior to the beginning of the tour.

Festival of Fame

The Festival of Fame was first initiated in 2002 as a project of the National School of the Arts and the Johannesburg Development Agency.

The six-day festival encompasses a wide variety of performances, workshops and exhibitions under its "truly famous, newly famous and the about-to-be-famous" theme. It showcases the talents of young people, up-and-coming stars and established artists and affords the "wannabe's" an opportunity to engage with professional artists.

Some of the events and performances include an Open Mic session, a musical, comedy acts, music and a Dance Spectrum including Jazz, Contemporary, Flamenco, exciting and vibrant Gumboot dancing, Tap and much more. There is something for everyone.

Events and performances start at 09h00 every day, and continue throughout the day. 

Theatre Etiquette to Remember:
• Get to the venue on time & check your programme for starting times. 
• Switch off your cell phone before the performance. 
• Do not talk, eat, walk in and out, or make any unnecessary noise during a performance.
