ON Wednesday 27 September, from 5.30pm to 8pm, have a magical, open-air, picnic-style evening, enjoying the enchanting sounds of celebrated South African electric cellist, Carol Thorns, as she performs within her iconic bubble. The event will take place at the picturesque La Roche Estate in Franschhoek, offering breathtaking vistas of mountains and vineyards. The proceeds from this event will be dedicated to supporting Country Kids Playschool in Franschhoek.
Carol’s engaging performance style and innovative musical concepts have seen her opening for Vanessa Mae and Elton John. A sought-after performer, she has played at prestigious events throughout SA, Europe and the UAE. Her portfolio of original cello projects, Red Cello Productions, include show-stopper acts such as The Bubble, Rosanthorn Trio, CODA Africa and The Galaxy Dress. Her debut album received a nomination for the Best Instrumental Album at the SAMAs, and her new cello album, Sanctuary, is out now on all streaming platforms.
Your ticket includes a complimentary welcome drink and a snack. Children are welcome and entertainment for them will be available. Bring your own picnic baskets, blankets, and chairs.
Thorns says: “I am performing for Country Kids because it is where our daughter, Emily, went to school from age two to four. It is where we made our wonderful friends who are still very much part of our lives today. The school gave Emily a supportive and caring foundation for future education. This is my way of acknowledging the power of connection, community and kindness.”
