(Conductor Daniel Walshaw)

The KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra will perform at St Agnes Church in Kloof on June 30.

Hosted in association with Christopher Duigan’s Music Revival, the KZN Philharmonic - slightly reduced to 40 players for this intimate setting – will play Ludwig van Beethoven’s youthful, celebratory Symphony No 2 and Piano Concerto No 3.

Pietermaritzburg-based Duigan, who is regarded as one of South Africa's foremost concert pianists, is the soloist in the piano concerto; and the principal clarinettist of the orchestra, Junnan Sun, will feature in the serene 'Adagio' from Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, as popularised in the film Out of Africa.

American Daniel Walshaw, who also acts as the KZN Philharmonic’s artistic administrator, will conduct the orchestra.

The concert will take place at St Agnes Church in Abelia Road, Kloof, at 19h30 on June 30. Tickets for the concert - which is part of a monthly concert series at the venue - are R150. Booking is essential. Phone the church at 031 764 2037 or email
