PENSIONERS and students have been offered discounted ticket prices for the concerts with Cuban jazz pianist Roberto Fonseca and local jazz icon Jimmy Dludlu this weekend.
Acclaimed SA painter Nico Phooko will provide live interpretations of the Afro-Cuban jazz performance on canvas.
The discounted price being offered is R100 a ticket instead of R200 and R300.
The City of Cape Town and Black Olive Entertainment announced the special concession for Friday and Saturday’s concerts, at the St George’s Cathedral and City Hall respectively.
Both concerts start at 7pm.
“We have cut the ticket prices for pensioners and students to allow greater access to these once-in-a-lifetime concerts,” Councillor Grant Pascoe, Mayoral Committee Member for Tourism, Events and Marketing said in a statement.
As part of this Cuban/Cape Town cultural exchange, the musicians will present a workshop at the City Hall for young emerging jazz musicians from the Western Cape on Sunday.
The concerts will kick off the ‘Sound Bites’ series of musical events aimed at raising funds for the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital which is due to open in 2014 in Johannesburg.
