Carnival of Voices & Instruments – Fancourt Classic Series 2016-2017

Fancourt is all geared to present the second instalment in their Classical Series, the Carnival of Voices and Instruments, on Friday 2 December. Featuring the local talents of George, Mossel Bay, Hartenbos and Oudtshoorn, the concert is the perfect start to the festive season at Fancourt.


Assisted by Stage Manager Monique Zürich and Production Manager Adriaan Louw, Artistic Director of the series, Dr. Ronell van Aswegen aims to showcase local excellence in the show. A resident at Fancourt herself, van Aswegen has developed a versatile programme consisting of vocal and instrumental performances by acclaimed and budding artists.

Attendees can look forward to vocal performances by the likes of Chanté van der Westhuizen, Pieter Raath and the i Cantanti ensemble; pieces by instrumental performers including Calvin Steyn (violin), Jessica Stark (cello) and Kerwin Alburtus (saxophone); as well as a medley of further musical offerings.

Music enthusiasts will be pleased by the inclusion of classical composers such as Mozart, Beethoven and Verdi; while the works of 20th century artists including Billy Joel, Lionel Richie and George Michael, add a contemporary twist to the evening.

“The first concert in our series, the Carnival of the Dancers, went off without a hitch and we’re thrilled to continue to celebrate the arts in our upcoming events,” said CEO, Georgie Davidson. “We’ve got fantastic vocal performers like Elisabeth Potgieter and Francois le Roux featured in the Carnival of Voices and Instruments; and look forward to guitar, flute, piano and many other instrumental pieces by local talents.”

The Evening Performance will take place in the Ballroom from 19h00 to 20h30. Tickets can be purchased at a cost of R150 per adult and R20 per scholar. For bookings, contact or +27 (0)44 804 0186.

The final leg in the series, the Carnival of Musicians and Dancers, takes place on Friday 3 February 2017.
