Drakensberg Boys' Choir to appear at uShaka on October 23 and 24.

Some of KwaZulu-Natal's best known performers - the Drakensberg Boys Choir and the Seaworld Dolphins - unite for A Dolphin Celebration, their first joint musical extravaganza at uShaka Marine World's Dolphinarium

Hailing from Champagne Valley in the Central Berg, the Drakensberg Boys Choir is an international phenomenon. Listen out for a selection from its unique repertoire which extends from rock and pop to jazz and folk, classics like Handel's Messiah, Mozart's Requiem, Bernstein's Chichester Psalms and Bach's Magnificat as well as unique African compilations accompanied by authentic African instruments and body percussion.

The finned stars also hitting the high notes will be SeaWorld's dolphin diva's Afrika, Tombi, Khanya and Zulu and saltwater showmen Kelpie, Jula, Khwezi and Ingelosi. However, the heart-stopping solo will come from Gambit, the largest bottlenose dolphin in any oceanarium in the world.

Presented by Coca-Cola, A Dolphin Celebration takes place on October 23 and 24 at 19h00. Tickets R100 booked at Computicket include a complimentary Coca-Cola. More information from uShaka Marine World on 031 328 8000.
