Christmas concert at Hugo Lambrechts

Hugo Lambrechts Music Centre, in Parow, will host its annual Christmas concert today, Thursday November 30, at the Hugo Lambrechts Auditorium, at 6pm.

Guest artists Pavel Petrenko, a conductor, and Anna Markarova, a soprano, from Russia, will join the Hugo Lambrechts Symphony Orchestra in performing a festive programme of orchestral works and arias.

Ethan Lawson will feature as a soloist in JC Bach’s Cello Concerto in C Minor.

The rest of the participants include several orchestras and ensembles from Hugo Lambrechts: string orchestras, a wind band, a harp choir, and a unique ensemble consisting of 15 guitars and eight singers. There will be also a mass item, which will bring together nearly 200 performers on stage.

The proceeds of the concert will be donated to the TygerBear Foundation for traumatised children and families. A donations box for goods and gifts for the children will also be available at Hugo Lambrechts Music Centre a week before the concert.
