July will see four more ATKV-Crescendo finalists to perform as part of ATKV’s Platformsessies.

Musicians Annika Boschoff, Suné Damons, Leandi Schmidt and MJ Scoltz made it to the finals of this year’s ATKV-Crescendo Mentor Programme and are now more than ready to show off what they have learnt through this popular musical development project.

Due to their diverse vocal talent and musical interests the organisers decided not to try and contain these musos in one specific genre, but rather let them explore their talents freely. “We made this decision in the hope that Platformsessies Untitled will act as a conversation starter which shifts South Africans’ perception when it comes to music genres, culture and race. That stereotypical idea that certain music belongs to certain people,” explains creative director of Platformsessies, Robin Fourie.

The audience can look forward to a show with a kaleidoscope of sounds and styles – from rock, soul and jazz to folk and even classical. To help bring this vision to life, the Crescendo Orchestra, under the leadership of William Jacobs, have been hard at work. They will once again ensure that the arrangements of the original songs by the artists and well-known hits will captivate and get the audience on their feet.

The light-heartedness of previous shows will still be there. ATKV-Crescendo ambassador, singer and actor, Whaden Johannes, will be the MC for the evening. “Like I always say: I show up, give it my all and always try to steal the show! Always! This time around I will practice my dance moves,” says the well-known performer and radio personality who is always up for a laugh.

Platformsessies’ limited range of wine in collaboration with The Grape Grinder will be available at the event at R150 per bottle.
