Way up high a tender feel-good tune rings out on electric violin while text, projected onto the long skirt sends motivational messages to the audience.

A break-up song, change the world ditty and a wedding entrance tune

2021-11-18T16:43:42+02:0018 Nov 2021|Categories: Music for Events|

All in a week’s recording session work. The range of songs and styles is fun to record to. This week I had a break-up song followed by a song about making the world a better place ( as we should) and ended with a wedding processional song recording. I’ve copied a link of one of the songs, can you guess which song this is for?

Art, wine and song

Combining forces, 3 local artists hosted an art Exhibition at a magazine shoot-ready home in Northcliff for art-lovers. With paintings, installations, film and structures scattered throughout the home, guests felt at home, and glass of wine in hand slowly soaked up and bought must-have pieces.

It was a pleasure to perform violin music wafting through the halls as guests browsed, while taking in some breathtaking artworks myself. Definitely food for the soul!

A performance for internal staff awards event at The University of Johannesburg was the lovely cosy spot for tonight’s event. The campus grounds were lush with the Jacarandas just coming into bloom.

It was the first evening that the staff of the department had all been in the same room since the start of the pandemic, making for a warm , joyful mood as guests caught up and as one guest remarked -she was so happy to be dressed up to the nines again!
