Walter Sisulu University Jazz Concert in full swing

14 May 2014, 07:14

The Walter Sisulu University Foundation, a resource mobilisation arm of Walter Sisulu University is proud to host the Walter Sisulu Jazz Concert; a musical extravaganza that is the brainchild of the Walter Sisulu University’s very own internationally recognized music icons and honorary graduates.

In a spectacular gathering of committed patrons to the WSU brand: Jonas Gwangwa, Caiphus Semenya & Letta Mbulu, and a loyal friend of the brand, Simphiwe Dana, will perform live at a one-night-only exclusive musical splendour at the Gold Reef City, Lyric Theatre on 18 May 2014, the most significant day on the organisation and university’s calendar, the birthday of the late great stalwart, Walter Sisulu.

The WSU Foundation is hosting this event as a means to celebrate 102 Years of Walter Sisulu Legacy and 20 Years of Democracy through introducing, the Walter Sisulu Legacy Fund, a fundraising initiative and home of great possibilities for the university, the Eastern Cape Province and the country at large.

This  fund was established as an endowment channel with a clear mandate to change lives through education and to serve the underprivileged communities through transfer of knowledge and skills thus aspiring to live up to Walter Sisulu’s vision of building society through learning .

As Walter Sisulu once said, “There is a place in the world for those who understand that the responsibility of education goes far beyond personal success and individual aspirations. It is a higher purpose, a calling to improve the world around you, to give back from whence you got and to be part of something bigger than yourself.”

“The fund and the university are dedicated to finding ways and means to ensure its students, many of whom come from humble beginnings, are equipped with skills that will see them realize their full potential and go on to become future leaders. Through this fund, we strive to match and continue the legacy of Walter Sisulu and we see it as our role to lead this charge, to inspire change and to create a better life for all as we follow Tata Walter’s aspirations of integrity, humility, peace, loyalty and all-round excellence” explains Dr Siyanda Makaula, Director Walter Sisulu University Foundation

The tickets for the Walter Sisulu Jazz Concert, in partnership with Kaya FM (95.9) are available in two categories; the first category of tickets is reserved for VVIP guests at R950 per individual ticket (including exclusive networking experience with invited dignitaries, food cocktail and beverages) and a corporate package at R20000 (comprising of 10 VVIP guest tickets, display of company banners and acknowledgement). These exclusive tickets will be available at WSU Foundation offices;   The second category of tickets is available at Computicket for R300 and R500 VIP.

The WSU Foundation is making a humble call to all patrons of the brand and friends of the university to participate in this fundraising endeavour. Proceeds from this event will be used to fulfil the objectives of the Walter Sisulu and will go to the Walter Sisulu University.

According to Dr Makaula the Walter Sisulu Legacy Fund is about  joining  a journey, to ignite the Walter Sisulu Legacy and to actively participate in creating possibilities for the future giants to stride the South African and global landscape by multiplying the impact of his legacy.
