LOCAL artists and entertainers need look no further than the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal (UKZN) should they want to showcase their talents, with “Music on a Tuesday” providing the ideal platform for talented performers.

Music on a Tuesday is a concept brought about by Pertunia Msuni, a UKZN alumna, where every second Tuesday in a month performers or entertainers can get together to perform on stage and display their talents to a wider audience at the Hexagon Theatre in UKZN.

Msuni, who started the initiative in August last year, told the Maritzburg Fever that it all began when she realised the need for artists and performers to share their work and build their audience before moving to bigger cities.

“This show serves as a way for our locals to build their portfolios and to grow as entertainers without having to move away from their home town in search of more exposure,” said Msuni.

Since its inception, Music on a Tuesday has hosted acts such as Acoustiq Assassins, Lindo Sithole who featured on The Voice in 2016, local thubla player Nishalin Pillay who feature on South Africa’s Got Talent, and many more acts.

Excited about future growth prospects, Msuni said that the show collaborates first and foremost, but not exclusively, with Pietermaritzburg artists.

“We definitely encourage our Pietermaritzburg people to come through but it is not confined to them only and anyone is invited,” said Msuni.

Msuni encouraged people to see the show even if they are not there to perform, saying that the show is a nice way for people to enjoy Pietermaritzburg’s finest talent while relaxing and indulging in some wine with friends.

“We encourage audiences to come out and show their support, and have had people come out on dates or even with friends who sip on wine while enjoying great music and entertainment,” said Msuni.

The show usually begins at 6.30 pm and goes on until 8 pm.

Locals looking to change up their daily routine or just wanting to enjoy some entertaining live performances can mark their calendars for the next show which is on March 6.
