Family Concerts

These concerts are aimed at introducing families to our symphony concerts. The orchestra is aware that many do not have the means to travel in the evenings to view our concerts therefore the orchestra travels to different areas from rural to urban to expose the different communities to the orchestra as well as the splendour of music. These concerts also form a part of our education and development programme, which aims to educate and entertain local community members through music. The communities are invited at no cost to them to attend these entertaining and enriching programmes. Watch our website and Facebook page for details of dates and venues of upcoming family concerts.
