Dear Music Lovers
As winter sets in, we have some heartwarming and important fundrdaising concerts taking place this July.
There is a special music launch for the Jessey Chakane Foundation for female development on the 13th, the Friends of Orchestral Music winter soiree featuring members of the CPO on the 21st and an incredible Night at the Opera at the Baxter on the 20th featuring some of South Africa’s finest voices all supporting the Voices of Africa Singing Competition – which has its final round on Sunday 28th July at Hugo Lambrechts.
In addition local composers are celebrated with “In the Dark” at Youngblood on the 10th and the Songmakers’ Guild continue their 25th celebrations with “Home Grown” – a programme of songs by Hubert du Plessis, Arnold van Wyk, Henk Temmingh, Martin Watt and more on the 28th.
Further afield the Stellenbosch International Chamber Music Festival runs from 5 to 14 July with a feast of chamber music, orchestral music, masterclasses and talks. All details can be found at www.http://www.sicmf.co.za The weekend of 13/14 July also has Bastille Celebrations taking place all around Franschhoek including a concert at La Motte with Jazz/classical pianists Best of Both.
See below for posters and booking, with further details on facebook, FMR, whatsonincapetown, Computicket, Webtickets and Quicket.
