CH2 in SPANISH FANTASY
A WORLD PREMIERE, GALA CHARITY CONCERT, at ATTERBURY THEATRE, 25 March 2020, 8PM. IN AID OF FCTAM.
Celebrating a decade of educating talent, Friends of the Cape Town Academy of Music (FCTAM #077942) was founded in 2010 by award winning guitarist/composer Dr. Avril Kinsey as a non-profit organization. To foster talent and musical excellence through education and performance FCTAM provides music study bursaries for super talented, but less fortunate young individuals to be able to pursue their passion for music. Past beneficiaries include: Siphesihle (Dee) Mayekane, Jackie van der Poel, Hlonelwa Gravel, amongst many others, who excelled and proved very worthy recipients, along with many more who participated in, and were given guitars at the Cape Town International Guitar Festival (www.avrilkinsey.net/charity-achievements/).
A passion shared by one of the world’s best guitar duos CH2, who leapt at the idea of a gala concert to support this cause. Contributing to CH2s inimitable, and passionate Spanish style repertoire, Avril Kinsey composed and dedicated a new composition, Recuerdos de Andalucia to CH2 for the gala charity event. Inspired by her Spanish guitar concerto of the same name, Recuerdos de Andalucia will receive its world premiere in the Atterbury Theatre on the 25th of March, 2020. Spanish Fantasy promises to thrill, entertain and take the audience on a journey they would not want to leave their seats for.
CH2’s latest award-winning international album STARSTRUCK will be available on the evening and some of the tracks of this album will feature on stage. And if course CH2 will perform their all-time hits that fans demand.
Artists: Friends of the Cape Town Academy of Music & CH2
