Roberts is also director of the Johannesburg Bach Choir, conductor of the Randburg High Community Orchestra, and Artistic Director of the St Francis Music Festival, held each May at St Francis of Assisi Church, Parktown Johannesburg. He is an experienced musician himself, as member of the wind section of the Phoenix Ensemble, under Direction of Richard Cock, who will take joint responsibility for compiling the programme for the Kruger Concert.


The orchestra will perform works of Strauss, Mozart, Bach, Puccini and Brahms as well as works of modern composers such as Elton John, Gershwin and even ABBA. The concerts are a joint project between the Innibos Lowveld National Arts Festival and the SANParks Honorary Rangers, Lowveld Region.
