Free Concert: Reflections of a Legend:46664


2018 marked the centenary celebration of Nelson Mandela, and the Odeion String Quartet presented performances at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown and Vryfees in Bloemfontein commemorating Mandela’s centenary with a retrospective music production titled Reflections on a Legend: 46664. The performances honoured the late statesman with a musical juxtaposition on the combination of his prison number 466/64, with a chamber ensemble attributed to each number. The narration is meticulously curated to avoid politics, but rather concentrated on Mandela’s personal life, looking at his character traits that represented hope, courage, love and sacrifice.
