A demonstration of strength in community

This coming Saturday, 11 July, a special performance, Stellenbosch on Stage, will bring back treasured memories of the vibrant university town known for its rich history and its wine and food culture. All these experiences are culminating in this musical celebration of the unity and solidarity shown by the community.

“Stellenbosch Unite is a demonstration of what can be achieved when a town collaborates in support of fellow citizens. It is clear that the Stellenbosch community stands ready to support each other now and beyond the pandemic.” – Visit Stellenbosch general manager Jeanneret Momberg.

Celebrate the kindness of our community

Snuggle up in front of the fireplace this weekend and enjoy the moving musical moments of the Libertas Choir who, in association with Visit Stellenbosch, have put together a special performance from which all proceeds are in aid of Stellenbosch Unite, a collaboration providing support to vulnerable communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Libertas Choir, conducted by Johan de Villiers, will shine a light on the warm-hearted people of Stellenbosch. Master of ceremonies Gillian Arendse will host the mesmerising performance of rousing South African songs by the choir and talented soloist performances.

Tickets for the show are R100 and are available now via Computicket. Once issued, ticket instructions will guide viewers to Computicket’s video-on-demand platform where the show is to be broadcast. It will then be accessible for seven days.

Make it dinner, wine and a show at home

A Proudly Stellenbosch six-bottle wine box has been assembled and can be ordered as an add-on to each show ticket.

The special edition cases of Proudly Stellenbosch wine are available in three variations: exclusively white wine at R670/case; exclusively red at R770/case and mixed cases at R720/case. Cases are packed with non-specific composition, from a broad selection of top producers across the region. Wine delivery in Stellenbosch is included, with a R50 fee for orders further afield, countrywide.

Stellenbosch on Stage shares the generous spirit and sincerity of the people of Stellenbosch while the music brings joy, comfort and solace. It demonstrates that while concert halls are silent now, unity and inspiration remain possible.
