Renowned Russian a capella group arrives
The Petersburg Quartet’s country-wide tour of South Africa will open with a gala concert at the elegant Brooklyn Theatre in Pretoria on 29 September.
“The venues for the Quartet have been carefully selected to emphasise the uniqueness and style of their music,” says private sponsor, Andre Du Toit who saw them perform in Russia and was inspired to bring them to South Africa.
The quartet will be giving three performances at the Brooklyn Theatre. They will also appear at the Bytes Conference Centre in Midrand and the Johannesburg Promusica theatre; as well as giving a charity concert at the University of Johannesburg.
The venues in the Western Cape include the Rotunda at the Bay Hotel in Camps Bay; St George’s Cathedral in the city; Lourensford Wine Estate in Somerset West; and the Bloemendal Restaurant in the Durbanville Hills.
In Kwazulu-Natal, Petersburg Quartet will appear at the Durban Country Club and the Hilton College in Pietermaritzburg. There will also be concerts at Meisiesskool Oranje in Bloemfontein and the Barnyard Theatre in White River, Mpumalanga.
Tickets can be purchased through Computicket. For further information on ticket prices, please see: http://www.petersburgquartet.co.za/calendar.html
