Capital Chamber Orchestra in Concert

Sun Oct 15, 15:00 - Sun Oct 15, 16:00
Nazareth House Chapel, Pretoria


The Capital Chamber Orchestra is a newly established string orchestra in Pretoria. This will be the string ensemble's second official concert and promises to captivate the hearts and minds of the audience. The premier concert of this string ensemble was received with praise from critics in papers such as the Beeld. "... dit lyk asof daar vir die eerste keer sedert die ontbindong van die Chamber Orchestra of South Africa weer 'n herlewing in kamerorkesrepertoriums sal plaasvind.", "Die CCO se musici is duidelik toegewyd aan die taak wat waarmee van der Merwe hulle uitdaag... die samestelling is een wat 'n mens jou hoop op verassende konserte kan laat vestig." 

Works to be performed: Strings Serenade by Tchaikovsky and the Adagio for strings by Barber. The programme balances accessibility and more complicated musical idioms to leave both the connoisseur and new comer to classical music satisfied.

A proudly Pretorian production. Conducted by Schalk van der Merwe. We hope to see you there and share our passion for music making with you.
