Music en Masse, the massed orchestra concert hosted by The British Cultural and Heritage Association takes place on August 25 at the DLI Hall. This year, the orchestra will perform under the baton of seasoned conductor Russell Scott.

The varied programme is one which will have general appeal and includes Themes from 007, Carmen’s Suite no.1, West Side Story, Intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana and El Capitan and opens, with acclaim, to the 20th Century Fox Fanfare. The star-studded soloists are vocalist Marianthe Panas who will perform Skyfall, Somewhere Out There and New York New York and oboeist Nina Alborough who will play Gabriel’s Oboe.

The Westville Girls’ High School Marimba Band will provide exciting pre-concert entertainment between 14h00 and 14h30.

Pre-book tickets on 087 702 7412 and collect at the door on the day of the concert. Tickets R50. Seating is unreserved. Secure parking is available. Lions International Cowies Hill will be running a tuck shop.

This concert gives musicians the opportunity to play together as a massed orchestra and also, most importantly, brings the joy of music to several deserving organisations by way of sponsored tickets.  

The concert will take place at 14h30 on August 25 at the DLI Hall, 5 DLI Avenue in Durban. For more information contact Cheri at the British Cultural and Heritage Association on 031 202 6174.
