Nederburg Concert Series

"I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly MUSIC, for in the patterns of music and all the arts are the keys of learning" - Plato

The popular Nederburg Concert Series has announced the dates of its annual concerts, offering some of the finest chamber music concerts to be presented in the Western Cape this year. From June to October, the chamber music series takes place every last Sunday of the month at the historical Nederburg Manor House in Paarl. 

Catering for all musical tastes, concerts featuring music for piano duo, guitar duo, violin, flute, cello and voice are to be enjoyed in beautiful surroundings paired with top Nederburg wines and a delicious finger supper. 

The multi SAMA award-winning guitar duo, CH2, will also make their debut at the concert series on Sunday 26 July. With their unique style of playing, classically trained guitarists, Corneille Hutten and Leon Gropp will perform a programme exclusively put together for the Nederburg Concert Series, taking the audience on a musical journey ranging from classical, world and cross-over music. 

The concert on Sunday 30 August welcomes the sparkling Esperanza Trio on stage at Nederburg. Well-known flautist Liesl Stoltz, cellist Polina Burdukova and pianist Kerryn Wisniewski will delight in a performance of music for flute, cello and piano and the programme will include works by Carl Maria von Weber and Philippe Gaubert.
