The Cape Town Concert Series is wrapping up the year with its exciting International Festival of Artists. The festival is a collaboration with the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra and is being presented to welcome artists back to Cape Town. Artists were scheduled to perform in 2020 but the pandemic, lockdowns and travel restrictions, put their tours on hold and this festival is a celebration of the return of international artists to our shores. The first concert in this International Festival of Artists took place on November 5 at The Norval Foundation and was sold out. It was a thrilling recital. The next two concerts – making up three concerts in the festival – are at the Baxter: November 12 at 11am and November 22 at 7.30pm. Both concerts are in the Baxter Concert Hall.
