The Rand Symphony Orchestra has been a vibrant contributor to community classical music in Gauteng for nearly 30 years. It offers musicians the opportunity to play ensemble work and perform in regular public concerts for their own enjoyment and that of the community.
The RSO is a community orchestra, comprised of people who freely give of our time to play, because we love music. Under the guidance of a professional conductor, we rehearse weekly to present regular concerts.
While the orchestra aims to be self-sustaining, we appreciate and welcome the support of those who believe in the importance of growing and building classical musicians and events. South Africa has a rich and diverse base of musical talent. Support classical music and become a Friend of The Rand Symphony Orchestra today!
