Unplugged live concerts in Cape Town – June 2019

Dear Music Lovers

June brings us the shortest day but some great live music choices to keep us cosy in the long nights as well as some celebrations for the youth.

The CPO begin their new Winter Season at the City Hall on 6th June and they are also part of a special Oratorio for Forgotten Youth at 6pm on Saturday 15th with the Amandla Freedom Ensemble and composer/performer Mandla Mlangeni. Rotary Waterfront are hosting a youth concerto concert with the CPYO on Sunday 9th at St Johns Church, Wynberg.

Erin Hall in Rondebosch has a nice mix of solo and ensemble concerts this month and the ever popular Carmina Burana is at the City Hall with the Philharmonia Choir on Friday 7th.  There is also a wonderful new series starting at the NG Church in Pinelands – classical and jazz mix with Best of Both and Dan Shout.  The Mount Nelson Hotel has a series of opera and dinner evenings each Saturday in June featuring Opera Angels Lindsay Thompson and Lisa Engelbrecht.

If getting out in the evenings is difficult, the Cape Town Concert Series close their first season with their winter matinee at 3pm on the 15th featuring cellist Alexander Ramm and pianist Bryan Wallick at the Baxter.  Also don’t forget the CPO open their final dress rehearsals to the public each Thursday morning at the City Hall at 11am. Tickets are R100 regular / R50 students and all the proceeds go to the running costs of the orchestra. With school holidays coming up this is a great way to introduce the youth to the wonders of an orchestra.

For this – and much more –  details can be found on facebook, FMR, whatsonincapetown, Computicket, Webtickets and Quicket.

Do make a date with live music this June!
