The Oude Libertas Amphitheater in Stellenbosch celebrates the end of 2011 with a performance by the Belgium concert orchestra, De Kompanje.

Originally the orchestra, conducted by Joris Degeest, was established in 1987 as a brass band. Within a few years this Brussels-based orchestra gained so much popularity – ot can only be described as spectacular – that strings and woodwinds were added.  Today the orchestra consists of 55 members.  The trade marks of De Kompanje are the enthusiasm of its members and their innovative programming.

The orchestra has already toured various countries as far as Canada. This is their first visit to South Africa.  For the Oude Libertas they compiled a special programme consisting of music ranging from golden oldies to well-known songs from musicals.   The South African singer Nadine will join the orchestra, performing a number of songs into the New Year.
The evening consists of the mentioned show, swing music, screening of DINNER FOR ONE at 23h15, “auld lang syne” at 24h00 and various SA artists performing when the band is taking a break.

A dance floor is next to the stage. Audience can feel free to dance while the show is on. Drinks and picnics allowed during the performance. Patrons can book for a meal in the Oude Libertas Restaurant : 021 8097473 . Included is a free bottle of bubbly! This event finishes when the last person is going home.
