Garden Route Concert Series

There are three concerts in this series. The first one was on Saturday 18th June with Marcelle Volckaert, soprano. They are taking place in Heidelberg, 50 kms from Swellendam, at the home of Chris Nicholls and his wife, Sally Presant. I am accompanying all three artists. We had a very small but most appreciative audience for this first concert which included Aria Antiche, Schubert, Berlioz and Villa Lobos for voice, and Chopin, Rachmaninov and Frank Bridge for piano solo.

The second concert will be on 16th July with Chris Nicholls, flautist. French composers predominate with Fauré, Poulenc, Debussy and one could include Chopin as French as well! But there are also Bach and Mozart in the programme.

The last of this series is with Brad Liebl, baritone. A good variety of composers in this programme: Schumann, Strauss, Liszt, Mozart, Menotti, Copland, Gershwin and Foster!

Tickets for more than one concert booked in advance are discounted but the opportunity for a really big reduction was for three concerts and now only two are left!

Anyone interested in booking for these last two concerts, contact me by email - or phone 028 514 2904 or cell 082 855 0534 (in South Africa, of course!)
