MASERU — A local classical music group, Kingdom Classics, will hold its first show at Maseru Sun on Saturday.
A spokesman for the group, Tuoe Hantsi, told the Weekender that the show will seek to introduce their unique brand of music to local fans.
“We are staging a show through which we hope people will get a clearer picture and feel of our music.
“This is our first event where we will perform on our own for the audience unlike in the past when we were featured in group events,” Hantsi said.
The classical music group was formed in April last year.
The group is made up of Teboho Morothetsane, Motebang Koneshe, Mojai Madrass and Hantsi.
The Maseru Sun show will also see performances by members of the Lesotho Dance Sport Association.
Hantsi said they expect at least 300 fans to grace the show but expressed fears that the late chilly winter might push the figures down.
“To us the event will serve as feedback as to whether Kingdom Classics is having an impact on the local opera classic scene.
“But judging from the responses that I have received from fans, I believe the group is going to be one of the biggest opera classic groups in a few years’ time,” Hantsi said.
He said they expected to officially launch the group in October this year.
The group has also promised to release its first album before the end of the year.
