Cape Philharmonic Orchestra

Classical Music in City Bowl, Foreshore, Bo-Kaap & De Waterkant

The grand auditorium to the rear of the old City Hall has very good acoustics that are taken advantage of by this orchestra and accompanying local choirs. Entrance is on Corporation St. Concerts happen throughout the year: check online for the schedule.

The CPO has been working hard to ensure its musicians reflect the ethnic breakdown of the Western Cape more closely. To this end it has formed the Cape Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and the Cape Philharmonic Youth Wind Ensemble, with around 80% of members coming from disadvantaged communities.
