Jazz for Hope
By PAUL BOTHNER MUSIC | February 15, 2017
Music has always been a bridge between people. It has the unique ability to bring together people of all races, creeds and incomes. It has always been, and will always be, a driving force for hope and peace. That is why events like Jazz for Hope are so important and need your support.
Jazz for Hope
Jazz for Hope is an initiative run by Alistair Andrews and a few of his friends in the Jazz music scene. Proceeds will be going to support Thembiteddy as she tours around the world on a tandem bicycle to raise funds for the School of Hope.
School of Hope
The School of Hope provides hope through education for at-risk and vulnerable youth and children. Since 2008 the school has matriculated 80 learners who would not otherwise have been able to complete their schooling. Through the efforts of a dedicated team of teachers, volunteers and a social worker, hope is restored to young people who need a second chance to complete their education in a safe and nurturing environment.
The line-up for the Jazz for Hope show is nothing short of stellar. Some of the biggest names in the South African Jazz scene will be playing at the event.
Richard Caesar Band
Babette and Olga
Paul Du Preez
Beno De Maar
Gio Fisher’s Dance Group
