Concert a team effort

History was made at the Ernest Oppenheimer Theatre on Friday (13/11), starting with the arrival of one of the world’s best piano tuners and technicians, Urs Bachmann from Switzerland.

After arriving in South Africa at 04:00, he was driven straight to Welkom by pianist Dr Charl du Plessis to tune the Ernest Oppenheimer Theatre’s Steinway piano for Nata­niël’s concert that evening. Bachmann did this for free.

“We are so grateful,” says Dulcie Harris, theatre manager.

“The show, the very first since the implementation of the Covid-19 lockdown, was sold out.”

Strict Covid-19 regula­tions were adhered to.

Because theatre staff are on strike, the Thursday and Friday prior to Nataniël’s show saw volunteers and friends of the theatre scrubbing floors and toilets, poli­shing brass and cleaning windows and mirrors.

Management of the Goldfields Mall generously organised for the foyer’s floor to be professionally washed and scrubbed.

As the adage goes, the show must go on – and so it did.

On Friday evening the curtain rose, and Nata­niël graced the stage to give the Welkom audience a perfect performance.
