    Wednesday, 07.11.2018

    East London/South Africa, 07.00 - 13.00 hrs

    Past influence are obvious: the typical African background, a strong connection to England and the traces of German Settlers. Some good examples of 19 century architecture add to the cities charm. Bad traffic and full streets are seldom.

    Inkwenkwezi Private Game Reserve*
    The small Inkwenkwezi Private Game Reserve is situated on the malaria-free Eastern Cape of South Africa in the middle of five different ecosystems. You will travel for around 45 minutes through the Transkei region, with its typical Eastern Cape landscape, to the reserve. The area is perfect for safari trips because the reserve is home to the “big five” – elephant, lion, leopard, rhino and buffalo

    The Mercedes-Benz plant in East London is part of the global C-Class production network together with the lead plant in Bremen.

    Le Port/Reunion , 7.00 – 18.00 hrs

    The city itself is worth a visit, a trading centre with remnants of French colonial times. But the island’s real attraction is its idyllic landscape. Journey to the Piton de la Fournaise volcano*, climbing to 2,300 m (7,546 ft) past constantly changing, unique panoramas. A helicopter flight* takes you to the island’s three valleys – see lush, green jungle and waterfalls from a bird’s-eye view in the midst of remote natural surroundings. And a hike to Cap Noir* proves that Reunion deserves its reputation as the Indian Ocean’s best island for hiking.

    The Show

    A night with the Magnets showcases the sheer versatility of a cappella performance. From Rat Pack to Rock Band, Nashville to Nightclub, The Magnets own each genre, effortlessly switching scene with their trademark inventive choreography and lashings of audience engaging charm. Current highlights include crowd-pleasing classics Feelin’ Good, Minnie the Moocher and Jolene, Sam Smith’s beautiful Lay Me Down, and a brilliant mash-up of the Jackson 5’s Can You Feel It and Can’t Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake. If that’s not enough, are you ready for Aqua’s Barbie Girl in eight different musical styles?

    From the Beginning

    From modest student beginnings as street performers in Covent Garden, The Magnets have had the joy of introducing millions to a cappella music for the first time in concert, on radio and TV. Their richly varied career has seen them sign a major record deal with EMI, release four albums, support superstars such as Tom Jones, Blondie and Bryan Adams, and play private shows for supermodels, heads of state and royalty. The Magnets pivotal role in the UK a cappella scene was recently acknowledged with a special feature on Gareth Malone’s The Choir, and the band are currently enjoying the upsurge in interest in a cappella music around the Pitch Perfect movies and new groups such as Pentatonix. This wave is enabling the group to take their music further afield than ever, touring Australasia, India, China regularly in recent years. A new album is planned for 2017 as well as returns to the Adelaide and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, tour dates in China, India and Europe and much, much more.

    Fratres Trio (classic concert)

    The traditional classical instruments (piano and violin) are joined in the Fratres Trio by what is generally considered a pure jazz instrument: the saxophone.

    The ensemble impressively demonstrates that the saxophone has become firmly established in both domains. The worlds of jazz and classical, which are often presented as opposites, have much more in common than one might think. The combination of saxophone, violin and piano gives rise to a new kind of trio: virtuoso, gripping and explosive.

The worlds of jazz and classical, which are often presented as opposites, have much more in common than one might think. The combination of saxophone, violin and piano gives rise to a new kind of trio: virtuoso, gripping and explosive.

    Three internationally successful soloists inspired by the musical heritage of the great masters of their field - Daniel Gauthier, Pierre Amoyal and Vassily Lobanov - have come together to form a new ensemble offering a perfect combination of string, keyboard and wind instruments, adding an entirely new dimension to the listening experience.

    Since its foundation in 2012, the Fratres Trio has performed at music festivals such as the Summerwinds Münsterland Festival, Musikfestival Rheinhessen and the Young Classic Europe Festival (Germany), the Musica Riva Festival (Italy), the International Return Festival in Yerevan (Armenia), the Musical Olympus Festival in St Petersburg (Russia) and Festival Européen Jeunes Talents in Paris (France).
