Poetry with Piano – Lit-Blitz Fundraiser – Poetry Workshop

Poetry with Piano

On Monday 16th June I will be reading with Charl-Pierre Naudé in the cellar at The Olive Station, Main Road Muizenberg. The show starts at 7.15 pm.

Louis Zurnamer Louis has chosen piano pieces from the classical repertoire that “speak to” the poems with witty underscoring, lyrical interludes and nutty improvisations. A weighted keyboard will stand in for the baby grand of your imagination.

The Olive Station’s fully licensed restaurant will be open from 6pm, serving Mezza plates, soups and Lebanese Lamb and Bean Stew, with coffee and cake available for dessert before and after the show.

Ticket price is R60 and booking is essential. Phone The Olive Station on (021) 788 3264.

    Egad Finew-hala, you people seem to be having lots of fun down south.

    Don't laugh, but for a very brief moment, a brief brief moment I thought: Cor, a show and lamb stew for R60! Then I realised it was 2008 already.

    Now I understand why it was supposed to be funny when my father came in and saw all us children eating supper and said, 'Eating again? But you ate yesterday!' A slightly related thought -- really identified with your comment on accepting the O-S prize, how it would pay a month's rent.
