Based in the city of Durban and the province of KwaZulu-Natal, the KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra is a Not-For-Profit Company and Public Benefit Organisation, widely regarded as one of Africa’s premier orchestras. Consisting of full-time professional musicians who come from more than 12 countries, the Orchestra has, over the past 36 years, earned a reputation for excellence and innovation amongst South African orchestras.
The board is led by business luminary, Mr Saki Macozoma, and consists of highly esteemed business and community leaders. The Orchestra is funded by multiple levels of government and also receives support from the private sector, foundations, and individual donors. The KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic is managed by Bongani Tembe, a Juilliard School graduate, who joined the Orchestra in 1994 at the dawn of South Africa’s democracy. A strong vision of high artistic values combined with a comprehensive education and community engagement programme positions the KZN Philharmonic as one of the leading arts organisations in the country.
