ZIMBABWE ACADEMY OF MUSIC
Tel: 2260684 / 2267195 E-mail: email@example.com
WEDNESDAY 17 MAY AT 6.00 P.M. THE ACADEMY AT 70 : HISTORY DINNER - PAUL HUBBARD
Paul Hubbard needs no introduction and his History Dinners are very popular. This one will cover the history of music in Bulawayo, prehistory to the present with particular reference to the Academy and include live performances - mbira, marimba, classical piano, voice and more!
Paul comments: 'Bulawayo is recognised as a primary hub of the music and arts industries in Zimbabwe today. The city and surrounds have a long pedigree of nurturing and delivering talent in all spheres of music and the cultural arts. Performers and artists in Bulawayo helped to create jazz, save the marimba, revive traditional drumming as a national icon and foster talent at all levels of musical production. The high and low notes of the history of music in Bulawayo will be explored, with the Zimbabwe Academy of Music, now in its 70th year, playing a pivotal role in this story.'
Pre- booking at the Academy essential - tickets including supper: $15.00
THURSDAY 18 MAY AT 6.30 P.M. INDIANA JONES & THE TEMPLE OF DOOM
The new Indiana Jones film is scheduled to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on 18 May so it seems a good excuse to show chronologically the first of the films, though the second to be released! Harrison Ford stars as Indy who needs to retrieve a precious gem and several kidnapped young boys on behalf of a remote East Indian village. With the aid of a night club singer (Kate Capshaw) and a 12-year old boy, he soon discovers the great mysterious terror surrounding a booby- trapped temple known as the Temple of Doom..
- Steven Spielberg creates an atmosphere of happy disbelief: the more breath-taking and exhilarating the stunts are the funnier they are. Nobody has ever fused thrills and laughter in quite the way that he does here. [New Yorker]
- It may be too 'dark' for some, but 'Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom' remains an ingenious adventure spectacle that showcases one of Hollywood's finest filmmaking teams in vintage form. [Rotten Tomatoes]
- Spielberg has come up with another rousing piece of entertainment. [New York Daily News]
- The sustained furore of humour, visual panache and headlong momentum makes for dazzling cinema. All of which makes it possibly Spielberg's most underrated film. [Empire Magazine]
Admission: US$2.00 [free to Film Members]
FRIDAY 26 MAY AT 6.30 P.M. THE BERLIN PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA: ORIENTAL NIGHT
Neeme Jarvi conducts the Berlin Philharmonic in an Oriental Night that features Rimsky-Korsakov's 'Scheherazade' and Janine Jansen is the soloist in music by Massenet and Saint-Saens.
- A superb setting with some 20,000 classical music lovers present; beautiful audio, fantastic videography, and to round it off, a stunning violin soloist in Janine Jansen. [BachTrack]
- A varied programme and highly recommended. This is a terrific concert and deserves 5 stars. [Amazon]
- Janine Jansen is the highlight of the programme and she plays earnestly, expressively and colourfully. The overall selection of music for the concert was wonderful, the venue great and Jarvi does a terrific job of leading the orchestra in delivering a most enjoyable evening of beautiful, classical music. [MusicWeb International]
Admission: US$2.00 [free to Red Carpet Members]

Set in the 1920s - two decades after the first series ended 'The Forsyte Saga: To Let' follows the courtship of two star-crossed Forsyte cousins. Children at the close of last series, they are now 18 and in love, but as they soon find out, their parents hide a dark secret that ruins their romantic dreams.
- Once again the sumptuous production design, beautiful costumes and impressive use of locations make 'To Let' a visual feast in the great tradition of British costume dramas. [Rotten Tomatoes]
- This second instalment lives up to the expectations created by the first series and by the novel itself. Highly recommended to fans of British top quality literary drama. [IMDb]
- This is an extremely well-scripted piece of work and the resolution is undeniably moving. [The Guardian]
