The Afrikaanse Taalmuseum en -monument (ATM) plays host to a group of classical music stars who will entertain guests on Saturday, 5 December 2020, with amazing versions of classical and modern classical music while the sun melts away behind the iconic monument.
‘Classic Picnic’ is the perfect opportunity to kick off the shoes on the lush green lawns of the monument, have a picnic with friends and family, and be carried away by the harmonious sounds. The music will be performed by Cape Town Opera Chorus members Christine Bam, Ernestine Stuurman, Marvin Kernelle, Siphesihle Mdena and Luvo Rasemeni as well as Paarl local Jayson Kleinschmidt of ‘Maak My Famous’ fame.
Guests are welcome to bring their own picnic baskets or pre-order one from the Oppi Berg Mobile Café on 060 382 9938 (R250 per couple, R450 per family of four). The café will also be open for other food and drinks. Dress warmly and bring a torch, and a mask. See www.taalmuseum.co.za/covid-19/ for the specific protocols.
Entry is only R80 per adult and R40 for children, and the show starts at 19:00. Tickets are available from Computicket and, if there are any left, from 17:00 at the gate on the day itself. Annual permits are available at R120 for individuals or R220 per family (currently offered at a 20%-discount), which includes access to all Full Moon Picnics.
