The annual Sunset Serenade returned to the Letaba Restcamp this year with its first event that took place from March 30 to April 1, 2006. For the first time, this year there will be two serenades – the second one to take place in September.

The guests were entertained in the majestic settings of the Letaba bush with different musical scores every evening. This year saw the first two concerts being titled ‘All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small' with music by Vivaldi, Bach, Beethoven and Handel.

The guests were entertained in the majestic settings of the Letaba bush with different musical scores every evening. This year saw the first two concerts being titled ‘All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small' with music by Vivaldi, Bach, Beethoven and Handel.

The third night was called ‘Let's Make Music – Shows and Movies' with contributions from Andrew Lloyd Webber, Scott Joplin, Rodgers & Hammerstein and Henry Mancini. Each concert was played in beautiful settings, with the sun setting behind the ensemble and the audience looking out over the idyllic bush. As the audience arrived in open vehicles, wine and refreshments were made available, and as everyone took their places the music set the tone for a glorious evening.

The ensemble consisted of Peta-Ann Richardson-Holdcroft on cello, Melane Hofmeyr-Burger on flute, Irene Tsoniff and Ivo Ivanov on violin, Marjan Vonk-Stirling on viola, Rosemarie Kane on harp, and Jeremy Holdcroft on saxophone. After a highly enjoyable evening, the guests were transported to the Letaba restaurant, where they enjoyed a delicious buffet meal.

The Sunset Serenade is a fundraising effort organised by the counter-poaching unit of the Honorary Rangers, with sponsorships from Mazda Wildlife Fund. All the proceeds of these functions go towards the purchasing of necessary equipment to aid the Sanparks ranger's corps in their anti-poaching efforts.
