Dear Concert Series Supporters

Finally the theatres can open again and we are so excited to be able to continue with our next concert!

Before Covid-19 the Cape Town Concert Series and Cape Town Baroque Festival (CTBF) were due to collaborate for a special Festival Concert on the 25th September. Even though the festival cannot take place, the CT Concert Series presents a celebratory programme of solo organ works from the Baroque era with CT Baroque director Erik Dippenaar.

The Baxter Concert Hall’s magnificent Von Beckerath organ is ideally suited to the wide range of tone colours of music from the Baroque period. It is also situated in the perfect position in the hall for the audience to see more of what goes on behind the keys, stops and pedals than at many other venues where the organ is hidden away.  The programme will include works by Bach, Buxtehude, Bruhns, Corette and Cabanilles, as well as a mid-14th century wild card!

Once again we are able to subsidise our ticket prices with the support of The Rupert Music Foundation and tickets will open up at Webtickets for R160 and R190. We are now allowed 200 people in the hall so please do spread the word.  We continue to support Covid Protocols with mask wearing in the hall.

The concert takes place in just two weeks time – on 25th September – at 11am in the Baxter Concert Hall – we continue with this timeslot so as to avoid clashing with any other events in the Baxter and enabling safer Covid protocols. The concert will be just over 1 hour in length and we invite you to stay in the hall directly after the concert for a short in conversation with Erik where you can learn more about the special qualities of the organ.We will send more details closer to the concert and very much look forward to seeing you again at the Cape Town Concert Series.
Kind regards
