I Grandi Tenori in partnership with Friends of Music invites music lovers to attend an extravagant Christmas Opera Evening concert on December 14. This concert will see a South Africa’s pride trio- I Grandi Tenori performing a two-hour repertoire that will include – opera arias, light classical as well as popular Christmas Carols. It is surely an evening not to miss out!

I Grandi Tenori’s mission is to create a total new opera fraternity that will liberate itself from within, using its own resources to fight unemployment, exploitation and non-recognition of opera graduates. It is for this reason that all gate-takings that will be collected on this day will go towards LET ME SING schools project- an initiative by I Grandi Tenori that seeks to support music syllabus in schools across the province of KwaZulu-Natal.

Christmas Opera Evening concert emanates from a partnership between a 35 years old music organisation called Friends of Music and I Grandi Tenori. To make this beautiful night even more appealing, exchange of Xmas gifts will be permitted.

The programme will include Nessun Dorma; Core ngrato; The Lord’s Prayer; Ave Maria; E Luce van lestelle; Una furtiva lagrima; Ch'ella mi creda; My way; Masibuyelane and La Donna e Mobile.

Other works featured are When Music Talks; When Jesus comes; Holy City; O Holy Night; • Silent Night; Every time I look at you and You Raise Me Up.

Bring family and friends and celebrate the season in style. All types of drinks will be sold at the venue.

The Christmas Opera Evening Concert will take place on December 14, 2017, at 19h00 at the Durban Jewish Club, 44 KE Masinga Road (Old Fort Road), Durban. Entry R50 at the door. Dress code is smart-casual.
