The first concert of the year was a sell-out, and this evening will be no less fabulous!

Luis Magalhaes and Nina Schumann are a successful husband and wife team who separately and together are award-winning musicians.

Nina, who was born and raised in Stellenbosch, was appointed associate professor of piano at University of Stellenbosch in 1999, a post she held while still studying at the University of North Texas, where she met her husband to be, Luis.

Portuguese born Luis also holds a professorship at the University of Stellenbosch and together they founded the Stellenbosch Chamber Music Festival in 2004.

As part of their services to the South African musical community, they founded an independent record label, TwoPianists, which provides a platform to promote opportunities for local musicians to record but also to put South African music on the global scene.

They will be playing Beethoven’s Symphony No 7 in A Major op 92. ( Arranged for four hands by H. Ulrich and C Czerny); Debussy’s Symphony in B Minor, piano duo; and Ravel’s Rapsodie Espagnole ( arranged for four hands by Ravel himself).

These are concerts featuring the very best in local and international musicians, so please come with friends or your music student children as this is a wonderful opportunity for them to see top artists in action!

Date: Wednesday, 28 February, 2018
Venue: Dutch Reformed Church Hall, Fichat Street
Time: 7.30pm

Segway launches tours in Sedgefield

Written by

On Friday 9 of February, Segway Sedgefield was launched at the Mosaic Market where it will be operating from every Saturday morning, which is Market Day for Slow Town Sedgefield.

Tour guide and operator Johnny Innes from Knysna Segway invited local media and tourism officials to try out the off-road, self-balancing, two-wheeled personal transporters and to slow down and explore the natural beauty, mosaic artwork and tortoises that make Sedgefield so unique.

The 2 km course leaves from the Mosaic Market, outside the Slow Roasted Coffee Shop and Roastery and heads first to Sedgefield Island, a conservatory for the local tortoises, where the tortoise sets the pace, and then to the banks of the Sedgefield Estuary at Kingfisher Park.

Travel speed goes up to 20 km per hour and the only requirement for drivers is that they are at least 1.1 m in height, and weigh not less than 45 kg or more than 117 kg.
Says Sedgefield Tourism Manager Belinda Hobson: “This is a great outing for the family and a wonderful way to see Sedgefield. I can highly recommend a ride on a Segway

Personal Transporter - it’s fun and easy to ride as well as being a good way to exercise your upper body.”

The tours can be booked by calling the local Tourism office on 044 343 2007 or Johnny on 064 655 9912. The price is R200 per person per hour.
