Wow, and just like that, winter is over and spring has sprung.
I can already guarantee you that this page for the next month will be filled with Spring Queen pageants and other shows.
For now, there’s still some time to breathe before the madness of that season begins.
This weekend you can cross over the seasons on a high note with Hanover Park-born musician, Jonathan Rubain, who is set to dazzle the Mother City with his latest musical spectacular, Pinkster in GrandWest, taking place in the Grand Arena on Saturday.
In what could be a first for Jonathan, 33, and the city, he could become the first local gospel artist in history if he can manage to sell out his show.
“I am excited to host my very own concert at Grand Arena as a solo artist and I really can’t wait to deliver a world-class show that will be memorable for years to come,” says Jonathan.
“Pinkster in GrandWest is production number nine for me as a show producer, and my biggest stage production to date,” he adds.
This concert will showcase his original music and popular gospel songs, sprinkled with some koortjies.
“It’s a real career highlight for me and I am making sure the fans will koordans all night to the koortjie hits.”
The audience can also expect to hear new music from Rubain throughout the show, as he is set to release a new album on the night, with his newly-formed gospel group, Seuns van Sion. The members are Roland Miggels, Colin Mitchells and Kurt Coetzee.
Tickets can still be purchased via Computicket, Checkers and Shoprite retail stores, and are priced between R100 and R130 each.
