Dear Music Lovers
Each month I get so excited to get to share with you all the amazing concerts taking place around Cape Town. September is no exception:
Cape Town Opera has three performances of Orfee et Euridice at the Baxter on the 3rd, 5th and 7th. Then the annual Cape Town Baroque Festival returns for its third year from 18-24th, with a whole host of exciting concerts taking place all around Cape Town including a collaboration with the Cape Town Concert Series on 21st. Dates listed below, but go to their website for all the details https://ctbaroque.co.za/events/ and book ahead at Webtickets.
An exceptional violist Lynn Rudolph has been offered the chance to study at the Birmingham Conservatory. She has already managed to raise over R100,000, but still needs over R130,000 in the next few weeks to make her dream a reality. She has a crowdfunding platform running for donations large and small (http://bit.ly/32nmZK5) and she, along with some wonderful music friends, will be hosting a fundraising concert at Youngblood on 14th September to help her get ‘From Kraaifontein to Birmingham‘.
There is the launch of a new opera company – Ubuntu – brought together by pianist Juan Burgers which has its first concert on 5th September at Christchurch Constantia.
Erin Hall has a jam packed month of great concerts including Songmakers Guild on the 8th, a performance of the Goldberg Variations by visitiing pianist Michael Tsalka on 18th and the second in the series of chamber concerts by members of the CPO on 22nd.
As always there are too many to mention – please see below for posters and booking, with further details on facebook, FMR, whatsonincapetown, Computicket, Webtickets and Quicket.
