Military music concert for Joburg
Pretoria - The Apartheid Museum at Gold Reef City is expected to be a hive of activity from tomorrow as members of the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) treat the public to a spectacular music and drill display.
The military musical display, the Johannesburg Military Tattoo, will take place from Wednesday to Saturday.
The SANDF’s Major Hammilton Ngubane said the show will start at 7:30pm every evening under the theme “Honouring Great South Africans”.
“This year's event is meant to celebrate and honour our Great South Africans who laid down their lives in the discovery of the City of Johannesburg - Africa's economic powerhouse,” Ngubane told SAnews on Tuesday.
He said everything is on track with regards to preparations.
Asked what can be expected from the 2016 edition of the tattoo, Ngubane said the performers will include SANDF military bands, as well as other civilian bands, drill/cadet teams, and dancers.
“SANDF iconic lyrical musical voices and singing sensations will be showcasing their music talents. Their experience drawn from various international tattoos they partook in over past 10 years, which includes Edinburg in Scotland, Norfolk and Virginia in USA and Moscow in Russia, will be evident at the event,” he said.
The SANDF will be also be sharing the stage with upcoming local musicians from the city as a way of transferring music skills.
Tickets for the concert are available at Computicket starting at R130 while the grand stand tickets go for R205.
Proceedings from the concert will be donated to a charity in the City of Johannesburg. – SAnews.gov.za
