Somerset Mall, a cherished cornerstone of the Somerset West locality, proudly shares the ongoing success of its heartwarming community initiative, “Entertain SM”. For the past two years, this initiative has brought joy to shoppers and provided crucial support to struggling artists impacted by the pandemic.
Every day, between 11am and 3pm, the Woolworths Court at Somerset Mall transforms into a haven of musical talent. Shoppers are treated to an exceptional auditory experience spanning various genres, including classical, jazz, pop, and beloved classics. The ambiance created by these talented local musicians has become synonymous with Somerset Mall’s welcoming and vibrant atmosphere.
Somerset Mall’s Marketing Manager, Mel Jeffries explained why they chose to embark on the initiative: “The inception of this initiative was driven by Somerset Mall’s deep desire to assist artists facing challenging times during the pandemic. Recognising the need to support local musicians while simultaneously uplifting the mall’s mood, ‘Entertain SM’ has proven to be both successful and impactful – a true reflection of our ethos.”
Somerset Mall’s live music sessions provide a vital platform for local musicians to showcase their talents and raise funds. These sessions have become a lifeline for artists whose livelihoods were disrupted by the pandemic, offering them much-needed support and recognition.
Shoppers at Somerset Mall have been treated to a unique shopping experience filled with the soul-soothing melodies of local musicians. The vibrant and harmonious atmosphere created by these sessions has enriched the overall mall experience.
“We are thrilled to see the positive impact this initiative has had on our community,” said Mel Jeffries,. “It’s a testament to the power of coming together in support of the arts and creating an uplifting atmosphere for everyone who visits our mall.”
