For many, hearing an orchestra perform in the intimate setting of a school hall awakens a new level of possibility. The beauty and necessity of starting to think creatively, and of experiencing life through inspired eyes, brings a much- needed aspect to the learning experiences of our children.
Symphony of Hope
Symphony of Hope (SOH) concerts are arranged by the Orchestra at various retirement facilities throughout the province. At these concerts, which are free of charge to its audiences, the Orchestra performs a number of light classical pieces, popular favourites, and highlights from the silver screen.
The Kwabazothini Teaching Programme is now in its second year, and is an example of the Orchestra’s commitment to community.
As part of the programme, the KZN Philharmonic offers selected students one lesson per week, designed to improve on their level of musicianship and practical performance.
Cadets & Mentorship
The KZN Philharmonic Orchestra’s National Cadetship Programme was born out of the need to create a career path for young musicians currently pursuing a professional career by fostering a mentorship-type relationship with musicians within the Orchestra and with the Orchestra as a whole.
