Dates: February 14, 2023

Time: 7:00 PM

A turning point in orchestral norms. Join us for an evening of romantic musical masterpieces, accompanied by the sultry sounds of the saxophone. Works will include that of visionary tango composer, Astor Piazzolla, a musical game changer of the 20th Century, who elevated the musical form of tango from the red-light districts of Buenos Aires, Argentina, to be performed on some of the world’s most prestigious concert stages. The use of saxophone in classical music is still a relatively new concept, and the instrument continues to be an uncommon fixture in the symphony – creating a unique and exciting experience for the audience. Featuring South African guest artist, Karendra Devroop on saxophone.
