Screening and ticketing of the Virtual Spring Symphony
Recorded live in HD at the Linder Auditorium in Johannesburg, the orchestra has come together to present a new virtual streamed concert series celebrating the majesty of classical music that shows off the musicians' phenomenal talent and passion for the art form. The orchestra's first full symphony performance since lockdown, this new ticketed virtual season will help ensure that the orchestra can continue to perform long into the future when live concerts with a full stage of musicians will finally return.
The season opens on Wednesday 11 November, streaming live online from 19:30, with each concert available to watch at your own leisure for 48 hours after. Each week sees a new concert stream every Wednesday evening featuring different guest conductors and soloists. Tickets can be bought online via the Computicket website.
Tickets cost R250 per concert, or there's the option to buy a 'Season Ticket' for all four concerts in the series for R750. Each ticket also comes with that added feel-good factor of knowing that you will be contributing towards securing the survival of classical music in South Africa.
