About Cape Philharmonic Orchestra

One of Africa’s most prized possessions is the creative talent that is born within its borders. The Cape Philharmonic Orchestra, based at Artscape in Cape Town, South Africa, is an important member of this ever-growing, increasingly acclaimed sector. One of its aspects, which is part of its social responsibility and community upliftment initiatives, is the development of the Cape Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and the Cape Philharmonic Youth Wind Ensemble. These divisions also go a long way in showcasing the ethnic wealth of the Western Cape and about 80% of these entities is made up of musicians that come from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The Cape Philharmonic Orchestra delights audiences all over the Mother City (as Cape Town is affectionately known), and the Western Cape. Often visitors from around the world will enjoy a very special show during their time in the country; taking home the sounds of the orchestra, which continue to resonate deep inside. This has been an effective way of showcasing the international quality and style of a local entity.

The Cape Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1914 and has, since then, attracted some of the finest musicians in the world to participate in its unique performances. At times, it couples with Cape Town Opera and Cape Town City Ballet for stunning fusion performances that are guaranteed to take viewers’ breath away. Internationally renowned conductors are an integral part of the success of this orchestra.

The Cape Philharmonic Orchestra may specialise in traditional classics, but it also gives audiences the opportunity to enjoy its takes on jazz, pop music and family-friendly hits. Its more modern take on classical music means that this organisation of talent engenders a brand new appreciation for the arts, both in South Africa and on a global level.
