Cape Town’s ‘Last Night of the Proms’ Returns…

Last Night of the Proms

The Rotary Club of Wynberg’s showstopper ‘Last Night of the Proms’ will return to one of Cape Town’s jewels, the City Hall, with ROCCOVER BEETHOVEN, on the evenings of Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 March 2024.

The Cape Town Proms Orchestra will once again be conducted by ‘Mr Proms’ himself, Richard Cock. There will be two soloists, the pianist, composer and musical director Rocco de Villiers, and talented, up-and-coming baritone Lonwabo Mose. Audiences will enjoy massed choirs comprising the Cape Welsh Choir, the Cape Town Male Voice Choir, the Wynland Koor and the Tygerberg City Choir, as well as the pipes and drums of the Cape Town Highlanders. As a special treat, the 39 Carillon Bells of the City Hall will be rung before the show and during the interval.

Next year’s beneficiaries will include the Friends of Orchestral Music, Victoria Hospital and various Wynberg Rotary projects. For many years these shows have been a sell-out, with over 900 seats sold for each performance. There will be generous lucky draw prizes, that include local getaways from Stanford Manor, Brookdale Estate and Cellars-Hohenort, on offer via the Proms programme. Secure, free parking on the Grand Parade will be available.

Tickets are on sale from mid-December at Computicket www.computicket.com. For more information, contact Stephen Bredenkamp on 082 570 4440 or at last.night.of.the.proms@gmail.com.
