The Friends of Orchestral Music are excited to return to Bowmans Law for an evening of music and conversation to fundraise for classical music in Cape Town on Thursday 23 March from 6.30pm.

Breathtaking city views and a welcome drink greet you as you enter the 11th floor at 22 on Bree Street before settling down to a mix of chamber music with some of Cape Town’s finest established and rising star musicians. Renowned pianist François du Toit opens the evening with Brahms’ Trio for Clarinet, Cello and Piano with Annelize de Villiers and Graham du Plessis. Award winning pianist Gerhard Joubert will perform Lizst’s Hungarian Rhapsody No.12 and, along with violinist Nicholas Bruiners- works by Sarasate and Kreisler. We thank Ian-Burgess Simpson for providing the piano.

The programme will be introduced by FMR presenter John Woodland and music expert Albert Combrink who will connect the music of the soiree to the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra’s upcoming season, aswell as highlight the important work the Friends do to encourage classical music development in Cape Town.

Thanks to the generous support of Bowmans and Bill van Rensburg, the Friends of Orchestral Music are able to bring you these special evenings which offer a unique and intimate experience to talk with the musicians after the concert while enjoying a delicious mix of canapes and wines.

Limited tickets available from Quicket. R550 (R450 for FOM members)
