RMB Starlight Classics is an event started by Richard, Jam Events and RMB collectively in 1999 which has grown to be one of the highlights of the social calendar in both Gauteng and Cape Town.
The secret of the Starlight Classics success lies in its impeccable presentation in glorious outdoor venues and relaxed atmosphere. Over the years it has featured some of South Africa’s best-loved artists such as Johnny Clegg, Sibongile Khumalo, Judith Sephuma, Lira, Karen Zoid, Pretty Yende, Sipho “Hotstix” Mabuse, Hugh Masekela, Freshly Ground, Zoe Modiga and Matthew Mole as well as international stars such as Patrizio Buanne, Joshua Bell, Katherine Jenkins and Tim Kliphuis, always backed by an impressively large orchestra. Through these concerts, RMB has also discovered and nurtured some of the best emerging talent in South Africa.
Starlight Classics in Cape Town takes place at the picturesque Vergelegen Wine Estate, and normally occurs in March.
Starlight Classics in Johannesburg is held at the Johannesburg Country Club, Auckland Park, and normally occurs in September.
