Neo Motsatse, the young South African violinist, is hosting the Neo Motsatse the Concert (NMtC) tomorrow (24 March) at Linder Auditorium in Parktown.  Sponsored by the WIPHOLD, the leading women owned and led investment company, this year’s concert will not be short of the magical experience Neo’s concerts are known for.

From the tender age of ten Neo started to headline her annual concerts as they continued to increase in stature and popularity. To mark her eighteenth birthday, Neo will this year be accompanied by the Johannesburg Symphony Orchestra . There will also be cameo appearances by some of her talented friends in dance and music. The choice of venue and a live orchestra accompaniment are a clear indication that Neo is making a definite transition from a young and budding strings player to a professional performer and violinist.

Asked about how she felt she remarked that there could not be a better way to celebrate her eighteenth birthday. “I have received a lot of support and encouragement over the years from many people and this is the one way I know how to say thank you to them. I started performing in front of just family and my parents’ friends but the concerts steadily grew in popularity and now there are many music lovers who appreciate my music and performances,” said Neo.

This year’s programme is a journey through time and cultures. Her programme is made up of beautiful western art classical music compositions, symphonic arrangements of contemporary pop songs as well as some heart-warming and celebratory popular South African pieces. There is something for everyone. On this, Neo commented: “This is in line with what we have tried out over the years. Although I am trained as a western art classical music violinist, I enjoy bringing tunes that my friends and country-folks can enjoy and even dance to.”

It has always been Neo’s wish to headline her concert at the Linder Auditorium, the premier venue for classical music concerts in Johannesburg. Performing there only a month after she turns eighteen can only be matched by the excitement she will feel when the venue is filled to capacity.

At only R50 a ticket, the tickets have been priced to be affordable for people who want to attend in groups such as families and friends. The price is also pitched for all ages.

In Neo’s own words: “I am grateful to my parents and Wiphold for making this dream come true. I know I can rely on my family, friends and fans of good music to fill the place up.”
