Durban City Orchestra: Romantic Classics
St Thomas Church: Sun 13 June at 3pm
Music-lovers have one more opportunity to listen to the Durban City Orchestra (DCO) performing a magnificent afternoon programme of Romantic Classics at the St Thomas Church on Sunday 13 June – at 3pm.
The orchestra, one of the longest running orchestras in the country, is made up of active and retired music teachers, a former orchestral conductor, university music students and part time musicians who participate voluntarily for the love of music in this community facility, with a complement currently of approximately 30 members.
The orchestra includes two accomplished professional musicians in Lykele Temmingh as Resident Conductor and Jitske Brien as Concert Master. Lykele is also the Resident Conductor for KwaZulu-Natal Youth Orchestra and KwaZulu Natal Philharmonic Orchestra where Jitske assists periodically as a violinist. Tony Hind (DCO First Flute) also performed between 1972 and 1974 as conductor when DCO was known as Durban Philharmonic Orchestra.
Durban City Orchestra (DCO), which is independent of KwaZulu Natal Philharmonic Orchestra, started as Durban Philharmonic Orchestra and was later known as Gateway Philharmonic Orchestra before it became DCO.
The DCO performed a sold-out afternoon concert at the Durban Jewish Centre on Sunday 6 June.
