THE Hilton College music department will be hosting a special fund-raising concert at the Hilton Arts Festival marquee at 6pm on Thursday, September 14.

Performing will be the school choir, vocal ensemble, award-winning marimba­ bands and the school orchestra. The musical programme includes the Bach Double Violin Concerto, traditional South African vocal music, seventies funk, symphonic rock and a cover of Coldplay’s Viva la Vida.

All money raised from the concert will go to Ingane Yami, a village for orphaned and abandoned children in the Dassenhoek community, near Pinetown. Brett Udal, director of music at Hilton College, said the concert was part of the department’s social responsibility programme.

“Every year we host concerts at our school for parents, boys and the public for a good cause and this year it is Ingane­ Yami.
“Our campaign started on June 15, with the Two Schools in Concert with the Michaelhouse music department.

“On July 23, a trip to Ingane Yami was organised for the Hilton music boys to meet the children at the village, to see where they live, their school, play games with them and spend time singing and playing musical instruments together.
“Simply, the aim was to build meaningful and loving relationships with the children so they know that they are loved.
“The boys at Hilton College are extremely privileged, and are in the fortunate position to give back to society in terms of their time and musical talent.”
Tickets are R180 online through the Hilton Arts festival website, www.hiltonfestival.co.za - the price includes a soup bar with gourmet cheese table, plus an evening of music entertainment.
The Hilton Bush Lodge and Pearly Grey Resorts will be auctioned on the night. Prizes include an all-inclusive two-day package for two at the Karkloof Safari Spa, a week’s luxury accommodation for a family of four at the Pearly Grey Resort in Tenerife, Canary islands (flights excluded), and a midweek family stay or event function hire at The Hilton Bush Lodge. - Supplied
