Delectable dinner and vintage entertainment, boogie-woogie style

Once again, The Dahlings are bringing their stilettos and make-up bags to Potchefstroom, stacking their vintage army chest in front of a backdrop of blockbuster movie montages, and singing some swinging tunes, both old and new. In the universally recognized sound of The Andrews Sisters, they bring a completely new vibe to contemporary hits such as Conga, Crazy in Love, and many more. They also stay true to the era of swing music with golden oldies such as Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Mr Sandman and In the Mood.

The NWU School of Music will present Cinema Wow starring The Dahlings in a special fundraising concert on Tuesday 22 April 2014 at 19:30 in the Alumni Hall on the Potchefstroom Campus. The show will be accompanied by a three-course meal with a complimentary glass of wine provided by Orange River Cellars. All proceeds will go to the NWU School of Music Student Support Fund to provide assistance to music students in need.

The Dahlings are Tammy Aslett, Nacia Kruger and Danelle de Vries. Choreographed film sequences in Cinema Wow play a fourth character and add another dimension to the show. This entertaining musical romp is family-friendly and will have you relive old favourites and discovering new ones. A short promotional video for this concert can be viewed at the School of Music's YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/NWUMusic.

Tickets are only available until Thursday 17 April, 13:00 at the Conservatory in Thabo Mbeki Drive, tel. (018) 299-1692 / music@nwu.ac.za. Seating is limited, so please book immediately to avoid disappointment.
