TRADITIONAL jazz will be the focus of an open-air musical evening being hosted in the grounds of the National Ballet Centre in Harare this weekend.
The event is called “Jazz It Up” and features the popular Detema Jazz Band, which
will perform a range of jazz numbers for music lovers attending. The concert is being hosted by Reps Theatre, situated adjacent to the National Ballet Centre, and will offer an alternative to the normal Reps theatrical presentations on either the Main Stage or in Theatre Upstairs.
“We have decided to present a quarterly entertainment that is different from our ongoing theatrical ventures and we have decided for this inaugural one to focus on jazz and to make use of the stage that has been in use in the past few weeks for both Starlight Dancing and Brush Up Your Shakespeare,” said chairman of Reps, Tim Garrard.
“Should this prove successful we shall be maintaining this additional entertainment thrust and we shall look at innovative means of doing so in the coming months and years.”
Jazz It Up will run from 4pm to 10pm on Saturday October 13 and guests are encouraged to bring their own portable chairs, blankets, cushions, picnic baskets and drinks hampers. A wine and beer bar will also be set up at the venue and a food stall will be operational throughout the performance. Tickets are $1 million with discounts for Reps members and HifAmigos.
