This October will see months of hard work culminating in a vocal explosion as some of South Africa’s most talented songwriters and performers take to the stage as part of the ATKV-Crescendo Musical Development Project.
ATKV-Crescendo, which mentors up-and-coming Afrikaans musicians and creatives, is set to host a celebration of talent on Saturday, 8 October entitled, Sit dit aan.
During this must-see showcase, which will feature the top 12 2022/23 ATKV-Crescendo finalists, the audience has the opportunity to experience the cream of Afrikaans songwriting talent lives on stage.
Arendsvlei actor and fellow ATKV-Crescendo alumni Whaden Johannes; ATKV-Crescendo Development Programme creative director Robin-Dean Fourie; as well as Athina Jansen, will serve as presenters.
The Sit dit aan production will be presented as a real live television recording type set-up where the audience becomes part of every moment of recording. The show kicks off with live performances by South Roots International’s artists.
Creative director, Robin-Dean Fourie, says this musical showcase is the culmination of a year-long search across South Africa with the goal to help talented aspiring singers and songwriters by providing them a platform to showcase their craft as well as assisting them in making their dreams a reality.
“It’s part of the vision to create our own platforms where our musicians can perform and practice while establishing a family of artists and supporters that can deal with each other and their art with integrity.”
