The Frank Pietersen Music Centre’s Prestige Concert was initiated by one of the centre’s violin teachers, Hadley Duminy, a few years ago when learners are given the chance to perform a piece of music accompanied by an orchestra.

This year, because of Covid, this concert was recorded in the Paarl Town Hall and will be streamed from 19 to 22 November.

This year it is not a full orchestra but a chamber orchestra – the Senior Strings with two flutes, two clarinets and timpani, conducted by Duminy. Classical music lovers will absolutely enjoy this concert.

There are some old well-known favourites such as “Summer and Winter” by Vivaldi, Vivaldi’s “Concerto for Two Violins” and “Concerto for Four Violins”. Another famous work is JS Bach’s “Concerto for Two Violins”.

Apart from the famous baroque concertos, two Haydn concertos will be performed, in which just one movement is played, one for solo violin and another for piano played by Hestie de Villiers. Also being played is a concerto by Rieding and one by Küchler. The violin soloists involved are Vialli Mocke, Kyra Adams, Matthew Lamprecht and Sadé Theunissen.

The flautist, Georgia O’Hare, plays the Badineri by Bach. This year there are two xylophone players, Hannah Purchase and Kyrah Adams, who play “Flight of the Bumble-Bee” by Rimsky Korsakov at hair raising speed.

This year matric student Tamlyn Lewies plays the “Siciliana” of Sammartini’s “Concerto for Soprano Recorder” accompanied by the strings. Tamlyn, who started playing recorder at Paarlzicht Primary School with Angela Basson is the centre’s first matric subject learner whose instrument is the recorder, one used to teach children when the centre started 51 years ago.

The ages of the soloists range from 13 to 16 years old. The orchestra consists of these learners as well as senior learners and staff members.

Tickets for this virtual concert can be bought via Quicket at R100 plus an admin fee of about R10. The program is about 90 minutes long and will be money well spent as the whole household can watch more than once.

You can go to Frank Pietersen Music Centre’s Facebook page, “@frank pietersen music centre”, and get the link to Quicket there, or go to Quicket and search for Frank Pietersen Music Centre.

Payment is made by card. Booking has opened so don’t miss the streaming from 19 to 22 November.
