Dear Music Lovers

The Cape Town Concert Series truely lived up to its reputation of South Africa’s premiere recital and chamber music platform over the last year- and keeping the momentum going we are starting our 2024 season in January with the welcome return of pianist Olga Kern, who will also be opening the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra’s Summer Festival.

The season continues with cellist Benedict Kloeckner in February, highlights of the Franschhoek Chamber festival with members of the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra in March, Beethoven specialist and pianist Jan Jiracek von Arnim in April and  we complete the season of 5 concerts in June with oboeist James Austin Smith.

We thank the Rupert Music Foundation for their continued support in helping subsidise our ticket costs. Individual booking for the season opens at Webtickets this coming Friday 15th December, but if you would like to reserve for all 5 concerts and keep your chosen seat for the season, please email info@ctconcerts.co.za and we can also arrange a small discount on the ticket.
Season ticket for Regular: R1200 and for pensioner; R950.

We also pay tribute to two long serving patrons – Ben Rabinowitz and Norman Sulcas who sadly passed away this year. We will be dedicating concerts to them in 2024.

Dates for your diary are listed below and if you are still thinking of festive gifts to buy for friends and family then let us know if we can assist with gift vouchers for a season ticket or individual concert – giving the gift of music could be the best gift of the year!  There will be more concerts to add to your diary as the year progresses and our Unplugged Newsletter will keep you posted on all.

Best wishes for the festive season and thank you for supporting classical music in Cape Town.
