The CoLab Network, in association with AEJ Music, presents Striking a Chord, starring Adrian and Emma-Jean Galliard, with musical direction by Neil Bennett, at Pieter Toerien’s Studio Theatre, for three shows only.
This follows a successful tour of England in August and their debut show Accidentally Viral, staged around South Africa last year.

The father and daughter bond is palpable as these two compelling performers take the audience on an awe-inspiring musical journey woven together with amusing anecdotes and thoughtful commentary. The show features the duo’s most popular covers, such as The Prayer, Time to Say Goodbye and Sound of Silence, musical theatre standards, like I Dreamed a Dream and Defying Gravity and unusual arrangements of classics Pie Jesu & Bring Him Home, Barry Manilow's One Voice and I Write the Songs, as well as a classical mash-up that includes the classical standard O Sole Mio.
The show runs for 70 minutes without an interval.
