Concert in a Convent Garden 2016 Flyer

Celebrating the richness of Music and Voice, Concert in a Convent Garden will take place on 31 January 2016 at 17.30 in the gardens of Springfield Convent in Wynberg.  It will take the form of an outdoor picnic concert in the late afternoon where you can enjoy a glass of wine and delicacies from the Opera Café.

Renowned South African musicians, Peter and Suzanne Martens, together with members of the Stellenbosch University Camerata, will form the musical background to the splendid voices of four of Cape Town’s finest singers.  We have the pleasure of presenting Violina Anguelov, Riaan Hunter, Ifriki Tadadjeu and Lynelle Kenned, fresh from the stages of West Side Story and Orpheus in Africa, Maria Stuarda and X Factor UK under the musical direction of Albert Combrink.

You are invited to come early to relax on your picnic blankets and chairs (gates open at 15.30) and be entertained by the Springfield Marimba Band and a Scottish piper.  A supervised children’s corner and roaming magicians will entertain the little ones.

Secure parking is available and Springfield girls will lend a hand to carry picnic paraphernalia to the lawns.
