About

The Capital Chamber Orchestra is a string orchestra that was established in 2017 by conductor Schalk van der Merwe. 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." -Beeld


Works to be performed: String Serenade by Josef Suk, Elgar’s Sospiri for Harp and String Orchestra and Grieg’s Holberg Suite arranged for string orchestra by the composer himself.The programme balances accessibility and more complicated musical idioms to leave both the connoisseur and new comer to classical music satisfied.
