Welcome to the Cape Town Concert Series
We are one of South Africa’s leading chamber music presenters. Here you will find full details of our forthcoming programmes, artists and booking details.
Due to Covid restrictions our 2021 plans are currently on hold.
We hope to return to the Baxter in April with a programme of Chamber Music featuring musicians from the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra. Throughout 2020 they were unable to perform as a full orchestra and embarked on a number of chamber music online concerts. The Cape Town Concert Series will celebrate the programmes they created in order to keep the music playing until they are able to fill the City Hall once more. Details to follow.
The Cape Town Concert Series was founded in 1955, under the name of the Cape Town Concert Club, by Hans Kramer, his wife Greta, and businessman Boris Canin, to provide a platform in the Mother City for the finest international artists before the public at that time, artists whose recordings were available at Hans Kramer’s famous Home of Music in Long Street, the city’s largest (and, at one time, only) retailer of classical recordings. Admission to its performances was by membership only.
