February 26, 2018: Pallavi Mahidhara (Piano)
Exciting solo pianist, the Indian- American Pallavi Mahidhara is on a return visit to South Africa to perform for the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra. 

She has found time in her busy schedule to appear on the FOM programme in a concert which will include works by Debussy, Chaminade and Clara Schumann.

March 10, 2018: Brian Wallick (Piano)
Old friend Bryan Wallick, American born but now resident in South Africa returns to the Friends of Music stage for the first time since 2016 to give a solo piano recital. 

He will play works by Franck, Schumann, Barber and Liszt.

April 30, 2019: Agnese Eglina (Piano)
The ebullient Latvian pianist, Agnese Eglina, who made a great impression in 2017 when she played an rousing programme of dance music for Friends of Music, will be back. She promises that she will perform an equally exciting programme.

The Durban Jewish Centre will be undergoing renovations and the first recital on February 26, 2018, will be performed with a brand new floor and stage.
