The 10th Johannesburg International Mozart Festival will take place in Johannesburg shortly. It will include a unique item on the programme.

On January 27, in celebration of its 5th birthday, the 10th anniversary of JIMF and Mozart’s 263rd birthday, the 67 Blankets for Mandela charity is teaming up with the festival to try to break the world record for the largest number of people in one venue crocheting simultaneously.

The day’s entertainment will feature Elize Kruger on piano, Camelia Onea on violin, the Jeppe Pipe Band, the Jeppe Girls’ Marimba Band and baritone Tim Moloi, among others. Registration for the event starts at noon and it’s all happening in the Linder Auditorium.

More details of all programmes, as well as venues and booking information can be found on the JIMF website at
