ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Many of the concerts Richard conducts fall into an Outreach and Development category, as he continually strives to educate South Africa regarding classical music in the hopes of developing new audiences for the classical music performers of the future. He has reached thousands of learners and their families through his work in communities in all nine South African provinces. Much of this work is done under the auspices of the Apollo Music Trust, including educational Children’s and Family Concerts held every year in various cities around the country.
The Eastern Cape Philharmonic Orchestra is a community orchestra comprising local music professionals and amateur musicians, who come from various professional disciplines and occupations. Their repertoire ranges from family-orientated concerts and youth concerto festivals to symphony concerts and Prom concerts with massed choirs.
