Our culture, our passion, our inspiration
Every year, the youth are invited to strut their stuff in an epic and intense showcase for the visual and performing arts in the sometimes quiet Klein Karoo town of Montagu on the famous Route 62. The town comes alive with young excited voices all eager to share their talents. In 2013, I was delighted, whilst eating dinner in a local eatery, to hear and see members of 2 school choirs taking to the streets, cheering their victory after an unforgettable performance at the NG Church. Dinner and a show anyone!
One thing is certain, under the directorship of RAD CEO, Helen Gooderson, this festival is growing wings fast! Adjudicators are chosen carefully to ensure that all participants receive valuable feedback and community volunteers assist in readying the town for the MMADD onslaught.
I cannot help but feel sentimental about this festival, having been one of the visual arts adjudicators in the past. I am hoping to post some of the 2014 pics here after the festival, so please watch this space or join the facebook page here
