Unplugged Live Concerts in Cape Town May 2019

Dear Music Lovers

It is hard to believe we are almost half way through the year – I hope you have enjoyed some of my classical highlights so far, as May continues with a wonderful selection of chamber music experiences.

Erin Hall in Rondebosch have six concerts to choose from this month, including a special mixed concert featuring musicians from the Cape Philharmonic performing chamber music, and Songmakers’ Guild continues its 25 years celebrations.

First Thursdays tonight as always has a mix of live music and art. Cape Town Opera continue their behind the scenes on Bree St, and there will be a chamber jam at Movable Feast (the old Rafikis). This will be a pitch and play for classical musicians – a great way to see how chamber music evolves.

The UCT opera department join with Cape Town Opera for 4 performances of Bellini’s- i Capuleti e i Montecchi – a political love story filled with passion and depth – which is at Artscape on 14,15,17 & 18 May.

The Cape Town Concert Series presents two award winning new generation artists – Junnan Sun and Megan-Geoffrey Prins in a recital of clarinet and piano.

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

From chamber music to opera – do make a date with live music this May

Kind regards
