Meet musicians from the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra in a unique new series supported by the CPO and Cape Town Concert Series. This is a perfect concert for those curious about getting to know classical music and musicians better.

Musicians from the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra will be performing in the second of a unique new series supported by the CPO and the Cape Town Concert Series. The concert was devised to offer a performance platform to the musicians, many of whom do not have the chance to perform chamber music or solo repertoire due to their busy orchestral schedules. The programme will feature movements from works ‘in progress’ or short individual pieces that give the audience a chance to hear a wide variety of music and get to know the CPO musicians in a more intimate concert experience. The programme lasts about 60 minutes with introductions to the works by the musicians, afterwhich the audience is invited to stay and talk with the musicians about their music over a glass of wine, or juice.

When: 16h00, Sunday 22 September 2019
Where: Erin Hall, Erin Road, Rondebosch
Tickets from at R100. More information email: / call: 084 682 1337
