The Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra welcomes in the New Year with its traditional Viennese New Year’s concerts in a new venue. The seasonal hit concerts will take place in venue 10 of the new Cape Town Convention Centre ll on Saturday 6 January at 15:00 and 19:00.

Louis Heyneman, the CPO’s chief executive says: “While the format will be the same, we will be transporting you to Vienna via the Cape Town harbour, since the room has a view over the harbour! We looked far and wide for a suitable venue, since the City Hall is being renovated, and were delighted to be one of the first to introduce these lovely spaces to the general public.”

Richard Cock will be on the podium, and the popular festive season singers, the husband and wife team of Lukhanyo Moyake (tenor) and Siphamandla Yakupa (soprano) will sing popular opera arias, while the orchestra will beguile you with the lovely melodies of Strauss, father and son, and many other Viennese favourites.

V Seating is unreserved and tickets cost all R130 or R90 for state pensioners at Computicket and Artscape Dial-A-Seat on 021 421 7695. Tickets will also be available at the door.
