The Kirstenbosch Summer concert season, which started on Sunday 24 November 2019, has become a much anticipated top outdoor music event in Cape Town, where families and friends enjoy world-class live music in a unique and awe inspiring open-air setting.

The Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts have become a Cape Town institution and a must-attend event for locals as well as visitors.

The Cape Town Folk ‘n Acoustic Music Festival will be taking place once again, as well as the much loved Christmas Carols, hosted by the Rotary. In addition to this, a special New Year’s Eve concert is scheduled with performances from Freshlyground, who will be joined by Nomadic Orchestra and Native Young.

On 22 March Capetonians will have a rare opportunity to join the world-famous operatic soprano Ms Pumeza Matshikiza on home soil for an evening of classical and African arias and duets, with the Cape Town Opera Chorus and the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Jeremy Silver.
