An evening for lovers of great music.
Set in the intimate surroundings of the John Rupert Theatre in Graaff Reinet, International Recording Artist and Performer, Saxophonist Andrew Young performs some of the best known and loved romantic songs of all time.
His soulful rendition of classic love songs elicits a wave of emotion from even the most stoic listener. One simply has to listen to the hauntingly beautiful What a Wonderful World or Unforgettable, or any of his original compositions for that matter, to realize that you are listening to one of the most complete saxophonists of today.
As well as the unmistakable sound of Andrew’s saxophone, he will be accompanied by Rene Piet, one of SA’s top pianists, originally from Holland but has spent many years in George, which is where this wonderful collaboration came together. Andrew is delighted to have this opportunity to perform with Rene once again.
A superb Musician receiving rave reviews worldwide…
