Dear Music Lovers
Thank you for all your support during 2018. We hope you are as excited as we are with our special 2019 line up.
Our first season has a number of artists who have been invited back .. at your request! This includes violinist Alexander Gilman with his pianist wife Marina Seltenreich, pianist Daniel Ciobanu, and clarinettist Junnan Sun with pianist Megan-Geoffrey Prins. Cellist Alexander Ramm completes the season with our annual winter matinee.
We also have a Celebrity Recital included in the season with pianist Olga Kern. She extended her stay especially to give a recital but it is on MONDAY, March 18. It is a collaboration with the SA College of Music, UCT, where she will be giving masterclasses to the students.
Following several requests to follow the College example and begin concerts at 7.30, the Baxter has agreed that all concerts this year will begin at 7.30pm, with the exception of the Winter Matinee on June 15 at 3.00pm.
We are afraid that we can no longer ignore the rise and rand exchange and, while we do our best to keep costs to the minimum, this is reflected in our marginally increased new ticket prices. We hope you continue to enjoy the incredible value of artists performing for the series and we continue to seek sponsorship to subsidise the value of your tickets. Individual tickets will go on sale for R190 and R160 (pensioners), R80 (students) with tickets for the Celebrity Recital R350/R250/R100 on 15 January from Webtickets.
But if you subscribe to the full season of all 5 concerts now, you can make a great saving. The cost is R800 (including Ms Kern). See below for your renewal form which you can simply complete by replying to this email and filling in your details. It is always good to have our information up to date. Our regular subscribers retain their seats; new subscribers will get the best of the rest for the whole season.
Why not also give the gift of music this season and buy a season ticket for your family and friends. Email me if you would like more information or if you would like a gift voucher made up.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the Concert Series in 2019. As always, if you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
