Valentine Under The STARS Creates a Second Night And Hosts International Musician

Due to popular demand Valentine under the STARS, the most romantic open-air concert on the Cape Town calendar has created a second night on Saturday 13 February.

The concert received an overwhelming response to ticket sales for the night of 14 February that Opulent Living Experiences, together with the all-new venue Century City Conference Centre and Hotel decided to host a second evening.

On Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 February 2016, Valentine under the STARS will not only host an applaud-able list of local musicians who will perform alongside the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, but popular German musician Cornelia Patzlsperger.

Cornelia is a famous crossover artist using the classical harp for modern interpretations of pop songs. With her amazing voice and her innovative way of playing the harp, she enthused millions of TV viewers in Germany’s Idols, where she was among the final top 10 candidates. The participation on several TV shows followed as well as collaborations with international artists like Seal and Peter Maffay, one of the most successful artists in Germany. The multi-instrumentalist has successfully written and produced her own songs and she is currently working on her new album, which will be published later in 2016.

Performances will include internationally recognized South African soprano Magdalene Minnaar, together with soprano Lynelle Kenned, Afro-operatic pop sensations The Gugulethu Tenors and Jonathan Roxmouth, who sky rocketed to fame after his performance as the Phantom in South Africa’s premier classical show Phantom of the Opera.

Both evenings will be hosted by Katlego Maboe, who, together with the talented line up, will create a romantic, spellbound and unforgettable evening under the stars.

General admission tickets for Saturday 13 February will be R290 and R350 for Sunday 14 February and will be sold through Computicket. Limited VIP tickets will be on sale at R1500 per ticket for 14 February only, which includes prime seating, complimentary food and drinks before, during the interval and after the concert in the elegant VIP lounge.
