OFM creates musical magic in Bloem

OFM Symphonic Pop Extravaganza features the Bloemfontein Philharmonic Orchestra as well as artists such as Joseph Clarke, Cézanne Yzelle, Timothy Moloi, Caroline-Grace and Tarryn Lamb.

Take the musical prowess of the Bloemfontein Philharmonic Orchestra, add the sultry singing voices of Tarryn Lamb, Caroline-Grace, Cézanne Yzelle, Timothy Moloi and Joseph Clarke, and you have a recipe for a magical evening of music.

And that is exactly what OFM, the sound of your life, plans to dish up for all the music connoisseurs in central South Africa at the Kopanong Auditorium (Kovsie Kerk) in Bloemfontein on 31 May and 1 June 2019, bringing an orchestral extravaganza to Bloemfontein.

This one-of-a-kind orchestrated musical pop concert, in collaboration with FNB, will feature the Bloemfontein Philharmonic Orchestra playing the most popular songs on the OFM playlist from 2000 to 2018, as well as timeless hits from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s.
Lindiwe Mtentula, OFM marketing manager, says the OFM Symphonic Pop Extravaganza will be a true celebration of music.

“It will be an evening of songs that bring back memories, performed by the highly regarded Bloemfontein Philharmonic Orchestra and our talented performers. It will be all your favourites as you’ve never heard them before!”

Both Cézanne and Caroline-Grace are Bloemfontein residents with a loyal following on home ground. Caroline-Grace has had huge success on the television show, The Voice, which led to a recording contract with Universal Music. Joseph has had an illustrious musical career on stage and screen and has most recently performed the music of Queen at Artscape Theatre in Cape Town and Sun Arena in Pretoria.

Timothy is a much-loved artist, who has performed, among others, at the 16th South African Music Awards, two Miss South Africa pageants and 2010 Fifa World Cup Opening Ceremony. Capetonian Tarryn Lamb is the lead singer of popular group BlackByrd and has appeared on stage (The Kramer Peterson Songbook) and screen (Binnelanders).
