“We appreciate that Namibians turned out in numbers, not only to celebrate good music by top local and visiting a cappella music groups, but also to contribute to the Buy-a-Brick initiative which is geared towards building houses for Namibians in the no- and low-income category,” said Standard Bank's head of marketing and communications, Magreth Mengo.
She added that Standard Bank Namibia is very happy to report that there were no major incidents during or immediately after the concert. “We thus thank organisers and the sponsors, Kickstart Innovation, DB Audio, Air Namibia, Vulkan Ruine Tours, The Hilton Hotel, and WebTickets for making the event a resounding success; and the music lovers for their good behaviour which contributed to the overall success.
“We hope you had fun and we truly appreciate your efforts in helping the Buy-a-Brick Initiative grow from strength to strength,” said Mengo.
Standard Bank also thanks all the a cappella groups that put up excellent performances during the festival and we hope they will consider supporting such a worthy cause again if called upon.
The entertaining acts included Focus from Zimbabwe, The Soil and Soweto Gospel Choir from South Africa and from Namibia, VM6, Collective Singers, Vox Vitae, and Broken Metronomes amongst others that gave outstanding performances.
“This was the first-ever a cappella festival in Namibia and judging by the feedback received after the event, this was definitely not the last of its kind,” Mengo concluded.
