The Covid-19 pandemic not only had far-reaching implications for the economy, it also had a devastating effect on the creative, arts and entertainment sectors.

As South Africa, and Central South Africa, slowly enters what could cautiously be labelled as ‘recovery’, the time is ripe for audiences to support their beloved musical artists on stage.

OFM and Bloemfontein Courant are proud to be associated with Bloem in Concert, produced by Marlou Strydom, featuring the cream of the city’s talent. Bloem in Concert will feature original singles by the singers, as well as collaborative works, which will show them off as never before.

Bloem in Concert will also feature a range of debut live performances, such as Anton Esterhuyse’s Song of Resilience, released in December and specifically arranged for the performance.

Strydom says Bloem in Concert is not just a passion project: “It’s a movement that I want to initiate in Bloemfontein to support the return and progression of music in the city. We have so many great musicians, artists and singers and I just decided that it is time to give them a proper platform for a proper performance. For the first time in two years, Bloemfontein will be able to experience a grandiose performance with world class musicians and singers. Join us for this once-in-a lifetime performance!”

“It’s exciting to think a staged show can take place once again in one of South Africa’s premier venues. Marlou and his team have put together something very special. OFM and Bloemfontein Courant are thrilled to be part of this event,” says Nick Efstathiou, the CEO of the Central Media Group.

Tickets are available at the PACOFS Ticket Office at R100 per person or R80 per person for group bookings of five or more.
