On 16 March 2017, the Vaal Leadership Academy and Centre hosted a concert at Hoerskool Drie Riviere with the partnership and assistance of the Austrian Embassy. The aim of the concert was to create a platform to show off local talent alongside international performers. The Academy managed to put this extravaganza together with youth events group Pele Fela Entertainment crew.

The audience was graced with world-renowned classical pianist John Ntsepe, who was born and bred in Sebokeng, Vereeniging. Mr. Ntsepe is now based in Vienna, Austria. He performed with colleague Anna- Magdalena Kokits from Austria. The two musicians were joined by the young theatrical artists of Mohlodi Secondary School in Sharpeville. Stage performers, Idabeth Ranake and Modisana Mabale added a twist to the evening. The show would not have brought on the same magic without the support of Mr. Thabang Letlaka from the Department of Education, The Riviera Hotel ( Bon Hotels) as well as Nanette O’Raw and Vanessa Blom.
