The KZN Philharmonic continues to do its best to thrive in spite of the difficult circumstances that face us all, as a result of the outbreak of the Covid-19 Virus in 2020. Because the situation is fluid, we have learnt to be a lot more adaptable, and are doing our best to continue cultivating a world-class arts organisation.

We are resolute in our aim to keep our audiences, musicians, and staff safe. As such, we’ve begun the work of making more material available online, while also using whatever safe, viable opportunities we find to share our music in live settings.

You will find everything you need to know about our online concerts by visiting our website. As far as in-person concerts are concerned, here is our current status – in line with the South African Governments stipulations.

  • When attending a concert, we are required to take a register which will include the contact details, symptom declarations, and temperatures of all our patrons
  • All our audience members are required to wear masks that cover their nose and mouth
  • Upon entering performance venues, every person will be required to make use of hand sanitiser
  • Seating will be arranged to make allowance for social distancing
  • COVID ALERT LEVEL 1 – effective from Sunday 28th February 2021, per President Cyril Ramaphosa’s address to the nation


Gatherings are permitted, subject to limitations on size and social distancing, including religious, social, political and cultural gatherings with a maximum number of people of 100 for indoor and 250 for outdoor gatherings. If the venue is too small, no more than 50% of capacity of the venue may be used. Night vigils, before or after funerals are not permitted and nightclubs remain closed

NB – Please note that failure to comply with the above will mean that you will not be allowed admission to the performance.
