Jonkershoek Stellenbosch Picnic music

I haven’t blogged in a while, but yesterday as we drove home after we played for a birthday surprise picnic, I just realized that I had to share our experience!  Oh wow, it was idyllic to take a late afternoon scenic drive out to Jonkershoek Nature Reserve in Stellenbosch.

At the gate, we met with the family and drove down to the picnic spot where we set up before the rest of the party arrived.

As they made their way through the pine forest path, we started playing some Mozart minuets and trios.  Our classical duo on clarinet and violin were the surprise element to the party as the family celebrated a 60th birthday.

The weather was perfect, the sound amazing and the whole idea of entertaining a selected, intimate audience in a lovely pine forest in the heart of the Jonkershoek Nature Reserve in Stellenbosch was enough to make you once more so thankful for the gift of making music.

An enthusiastic 74-year old surprised us by taking out his mouth organ as he joined us while we were playing “Jesu Joy of man’s Desirin'”.   As we finished the piece of music, he continued with “Ode to Joy” and this time we improvised and joined him into a much loved performance with lots of laughter and cheer.  A day that won’t be easily forgotten!

You can hire our classical duo on violin and clarinet for your wedding & pre-drinks ceremony, a special birthday celebration or any corporate event or awards ceremony.  Contact us or drop us an e-mail at elanie.lagrange@gmail.com
