This year's Annual Benefit Concert for his Eminence Cardinal Wilfrid Napier is Dining with the Stars, to be hosted at the Emmanuel Cathedral in Durban on October 18 starting at 18h00.

For this year the event will include a four-course dinner and a performance of Classical and Spiritual music to entertain guests in different stages throughout the night. Providing the music will be opera singer Zulu Pavaroti (Mdu Majola), Thandeka Dube-Ndlovu, Heavenly Voices Ensemble, Emmanuel Cathedral choir, Siyabonga Gumbi (organist) and others.

It is hoped to serve the dinner outside at the piazza should weather permit otherwise a closed venue has been secured in case of bad weather. His Eminence Cardinal Napier will be the guest speaker and ticket sales will be shared between the Napier Centre for Healing and repairs of the Cathedral pipe organ.

Tickets are available at Emmanuel Catholic during office hours Monday to Friday (08h30 to 16h30) for R350 pp (R600 for a couple). Last day for bookings will be October 15, 2019, for catering purposes.
