The Johannesburg Philharmonic will really warm the hearts of music lovers this winter. We started Thursday with a fabulous concert. Every Thursday in June, at the Linder Auditorium, we will have a fantastic concert featuring international conductors and soloists as well as the cream of South African artists.

This Thursday, June 16, it is the conductor of Israeli origin Daniel Boic who will once again take the stage with the JPO. They will be joined by two soloists: multi-award winning local violinist Samson Diamond, who conducts the Odeion String Quartet at the University of the Free State, and Jeanne-Louise Moolman.

Why should I come and see the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra perform live?

This music is composed by the masters. It’s great entertainment and there’s nothing quite like a live concert. We also go to communities. Every week we’re in a township somewhere, bringing music to where the people are. We reach over 20,000 schoolchildren each year.
