Delightful range of classical live music concerts to take place in Klein Karoo
A delightful range of classical music concerts is set to take place in the Klein Karoo.
Billed as the Klein Karoo Klassique, the concerts will be spaced out over several months and will range from opera, traditional and contemporary art songs, and melodies from musicals.
These have all been organised by the KKNK , or Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees.
Music lovers are in for a treat in the Klein Karoo town of Oudtshoorn where a series of concerts have been arranged to take place over several months, kicking off with soprano Lynelle Kenned and pianist Stefan Lombard in Song Treasures, a recital of works from popular classics and local gems from Handel and Mozart, to Bernstein and Steyn
These have all been organised by the KKNK , or Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees, and Refilwe Moloto talks to
the artistic director Hugo Theart.
