At 20h00 on Friday Evening, 22 November 2019, we, the members of The Rand Symphony Orchestra, will bring you some of the world’s most splendid orchestra music. We will be conducted, as always, by our wonderful resident Conductor and Musical Director, Carel Henn.
The evening’s entertainment will open with Mozart’s glorious Overture to The Marriage of Figaro. We will then accompany superb pianist, Charl du Plessis, in Beethoven’s marvellous Piano Concerto No. 3. For our splendid conclusion to the evening’s performance, The Rand Symphony Orchestra will present that most exquisite work by Dvořak, his Symphony No. 9 – The New World – with its luminous, translucent melodies, its lively, dancing movements, intricate rhythms, and rich, symphonic sounds.
We look forward to seeing you there – for the love of music!Time & Date:20h00, Friday 22 November 2019

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 Rand Symphony 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!Contact: Isabel Bradley (Chairperson) email@example.com
