Mandela Day Vryfees concert aims to impress
2014-07-15

This year we celebrate Mandela Day with musical flair at the Vryfees. Well-known artists will give freely of their time and talent as part of their 67 minutes to help raise funds for the University of the Free State’s (UFS) No Student Hungry programme (NSH).

The UFS NSH Mandela Day Tribute Concert boasts artists such as Mathys Roets, Navi Redd, Corneil Muller, 3 x A Lady, Jacobus Silver and the 2014 Stage Door winners, the Akasia Ser Group. Performances ranging from the warm acoustic guitar and vocals of Mathys Roets, to the energetic a cappella medley of Navi Redd, promise to captivate and entertain the audience.

Angelo Mockie and Tonderai Chiyindiko, renowned for their excellent directing in numerous productions, are proud supporters of the NSH programme and hereby invite you to celebrate one of our country's most inspiring icons while helping us help our students. All of the concert proceeds will be donated to the NSH programme.

The NSH programme was initiated in 2011 by Prof Jonathan Jansen, Vice-Chancellor and Rector of the University of the Free State, and Rudi Buys, Dean of Student Affairs. The bursary is awarded on the basis of financial need, good academic performance, active participation in student life programmes and a commitment to serving the community. 
 
Buy your tickets at Computicket or at the Vryfees ticket office on the Bloemfontein Campus.
