The Friends of Orchestral Music are delighted to be hosting this Thursday’s Benefit Concert with the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra. Featuring conductor Bernhard Gueller and the young pianist Daniel Kharitonov, this concert enables FOM to help the orchestra raise much needed funds for their everyday running costs.
You can click below for more information about Daniel in this article from Weekend Special.
There are still some tickets available from Computicket for this concert which includes a complimentary glass of wine afterwards, but if you are not able to attend in the evening, the final dress rehearsal will be open as usual at the City Hall from 11am. Tickets are R100 or R80 for FOM members and students can come for R50. Parking is always difficult to find, so please do come early to avoid any last minute rush.
The CPO finish their season on 12th September with the charismatic violinist Yi-Jia Susanne Hou also conducted by Bernhard Gueller. They then continue their ever busy schedule with schools concerts – taking music out to youngsters all around the Cape region followed by a once off special concert featuring Tim Kliphuis- jazz/classical crossover violinist who will perform with his Trio on 27th September.
Other music events that may be of interest include the annual Cape Town Baroque Festival which returns for its 3rd year – filled with inventive and exciting concerts around the theme of ‘Diversity in early music’. Taking place from 18th to 24th September, tickets and details from Webtickets and http://www.ctbaroque.co.za
On September 22nd musicians from the CPO will be performing a programme of short chamber works at Erin Hall, Rondebosch from 4pm. These concerts offer the musicians an opportunity to share music that they love with the audience that they usually only get to see from afar. Tickets from Quicket and at the door.
Thank you for your continued support of orchestral music in Cape Town.
