One of the several venues for the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra, South Africa’s ‘orchestra for all seasons’. The CPO has been working hard to ensure its musicians reflect the ethnic breakdown of the Western Cape. 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.

The auditorium has very good acoustics that are also taken advantage of by local choirs.
