The Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra’s flagship youth orchestras will soothe your soul while showing you that nothing, not even a pandemic, stops them from doing what they do best  …. They perform for you at the highest level.  You can also see how the junior and intermediate strings ensembles show how their musicians are waiting in the wings~ The concert was recorded without an audience at the Cape Town City Hall on December 5, 2021.

The bonus is the addition of items by the Junior and Intermediate Strings.

Please note that by buying a ticket on Quicket for a CPO concert your email will be added to the CPO mailing list for marketing purposes of orchestral activities.
