> Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra

Celebrating its centenary this year, the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO) is arguably the most versatile and active orchestra on the continent. Performing not only symphony concerts at the highest level with internationally acclaimed conductors like Richard Bonynge and soloists such as Sarah Chang and Joshua Bell, the CPO also participates in festivals and concerts across all genres of music – amounting to a staggering 140 performances per year. The Orchestra contributes handsomely in making Cape Town part of a global culture, with numerous CDs and DVDs available on the international market. It also hosts the Len van Zyl Conducting Competition and runs a vast outreach and development programme with four youth orchestras and strings training projects.
