The Coronavirus / Covid-19 Pandemic has resulted in unprecedented restrictions on every aspect of what we have all come to regard as ‘normal’ life. The lockdown imposed by our Government has prevented many businesses from trading, and social gatherings – such as our rehearsals and concerts – are currently forbidden. This will not last forever! The RSO will not be defeated by these adverse circumstances; we remain a going concern, and fully intend to resume rehearsals and performances as soon as the lockdown restrictions permit.
We are confident that the Rand Symphony Orchestra will come through this enforced lockdown stronger than ever – For the love of music! – and we look forward to seeing our orchestra members back at rehearsals when lockdown allows, and you, our loyal audience, at our upcoming concerts.
Here are our upcoming concerts for 2020
|Postponed to September||To be confirmed||Rising Stars Youth Concert||Carel Henn|
|Sunday 22 November 2020 (afternoon)||Roodepoort Theatre||Symphony Concert featuring Zanta Hofmeyr||Carel Henn|
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
