Born on July 18, 1918, Mandela’s life and legacy will be honored in South Africa and across the globe.The Johannesburg-based Nelson Mandela Foundation, which was founded by Mandela to preserve and perpetuate his vision of freedom and equality for all, has planned nearly 50 commemorative events projects planned for the centennial year.It is a unique opportunity to bring cultures together through music, and we are honored to play a role in the Nelson Mandela centenary celebration.” The Minnesota Orchestra’s tour will launch in Cape Town on August 10th.The tour is presented in partnership with Classical Movements, the international concert tour management company which has done extensive work in South Africa since 1994.We met at a wine bar and I knew right away this was a person I wanted to be with. The Minnesota Orchestra will be the first professional Orchestra from the United States ever to tour South Africa this August, part of the orchestra’s Sommerfest 2018: “Music for Mandela.” Sommerfest celebrates Nobel Peace Prize-winning South African leader and human rights advocate Nelson Mandela, as a part of the worldwide celebration for the centenary of his birth.Just as on the tour, audiences here will experience music that derives from the muscial traditions of South Africa, America, and European countries.
You have high standards and little time to keep going on disaster dates with misleading profiles or to meet someone in a bar.
Soweto is especially significant to the celebration: Soweto is the township where Mandela lived in the 1940’s and 50’s, from which much of his war against apartheid was fought.
The orchestra will be playing in Soweto’s Regina Mundi Roman Catholic Church, which has a long history of providing shelter for many anti-apartheid activists and groups during the fight for freedom.
