Since the founder of the Foundation, Arch Klumph, was for 14 years a flautist and later manager of the Cleveland Orchestra, a flute soloist, Sakhile Humbane (21), winner of the 2015 National Youth Music Competition, will play the 1st movement from Mozart’s Flute Concerto.

The other two soloists are Jordan Brooks (13), winner of the 2015 Hubert van der Spuy National Competition for Primary School Learners, who will perform the 1st movement from the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto, and 14-year-old Leo Gevisser (the youngest ever winner of the Atterbury National Piano Competition), who will play the 1st movement of Grieg’s Piano Concerto.

Phillips will also conduct the CPYO in the William Tell Overture by Rossini and Finlandia by Sibelius.

Proceeds go towards the Youth Orchestra and the Rotary Foundation.

Tickets at R265 each (which includes a snack and a glass of wine or soft drink afterwards) can be booked through Computicket or Artscape Dial-a-Seat on 021 425 7695.
