Dear Music Teacher

The Cape Philharmonic orchestra invites all schools to attend their final dress rehearsals before each concert, free of charge, at the Cape Town City Hall.(A small donation towards the Orchestra and their Outreach programs, will be greatly appreciated)  This would give many learners the opportunity to experience a full symphony orchestra.

If any of your school learners would like to attend any of the dress rehearsals below, (music subject students or any others) you can contact Jutta from the Friends of the Orchestra at 021 434 2477 or 082 079 0502 to make a booking.
