Tracy Stark’s Songworks Music School

2011-07-14 00:00

Following on from the huge success of The Summer Sunset held at Yellowwood Café last December, Tracy Stark’s Songworks Music School is proud to present The 2011 Winter Music Festival on July 24.

A jam-packed programme will run from 10.00am until 5.00pm as 40 performers take to the stage to entertain audiences with a selection of up-beat popular hit songs made famous by artists like: Atomic Kitten, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Phil Collins, The Eagles, Metallica, Adele, Randy Crawford, Nickelback. Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt, Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, Dido, Janet Jackson, Bob Dylan, Brandy, Glee, M People, Carrie Underwood, Kellie Pickler, Plumb, Simon and Garkunkel, Eva Cassidy, Kate Nash, Mandy Moore, Paramour, Tracey Chapman, Alanis Morrisette Michelle Branch and Carlos Santana – there really is something for everyone! Young performers will be featured in the morning and the older members of the company will take the stage in the afternoon.

Songworks Music School in Hilton provides vocal training, guitar tuition and a professional recording studio facility. The school is run very much as a mini Fame Academy with the emphasis on giving students from seven years to the mid-20s (and beyond!) the chance to perform regularly in front of a live audience. Twice a year, in July and December, Songworks stages professional quality concerts to showcase the talents of our singers and musicians, all of whom come from Pietermaritzburg and surrounds.

The Festival will be held at the Yellowwood Conference Centre. The stage will be set up inside the venue to create a relaxed “Barnyard” type feel but if weather permits the audience will spill outside onto the lawns. Bring a blankets, cushions and a picnic, no drinks allowed as there is a fully-stocked cash bar available at Yellowwood for alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

Tickets: R75 for adults, R50 for scholars and R25 for pre-schoolers are available at the gate on the day or in advance from: Songworks Music School Hilton - 072 576 2794.
