It is with regret that the managements of Wavehouse at Gateway and the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra have announced the cancellation of the scheduled Mother’s Day concert due to take place on Sunday afternoon, May 14.

Due to unforeseen circumstances the concert became practically no longer feasible.

“Unfortunately, circumstances beyond our control have made this concert no longer possible at this time. Mother’s Day would have been the perfect occasion to enjoy our programme of easy-listening, celebratory and nostalgic music” said CEO Bongani Tembe. “However we have a bumper line-up ahead and hope our concert patrons will catch the orchestra’s remarkable music at another opportunity in the near future,” he said.

Existing ticket holders may get a refund through Computicket.

The KZN Philharmonic in association with the South African Society of Music Teachers presents the KZN Young Performers Concert on May 20 in the Playhouse Drama. This is a very special once-off concert where the cream of KZN’s music and vocal students get an opportunity to perform live with Africa’s premier orchestra. Tickets from Computicket.

The KZN Philharmonic presents its World Symphony Winter Season weekly at 19h30 from June 1 to 22 every Thursday evening in the Durban City Hall. Tickets from Computicket.

Of special mention to supporters of youthful global music-makers is the opening concert on June 1 which features the Yale University Glee Club Choir led by Dr Jeffrey Douma performing Beethoven’s Mass in C major, Op. 86.
