The Cape Town Concert Series – South Africa’s leading chamber music and recital platform.
Founded in 1955, the Cape Town Concert Series is South Africa’s leading chamber music and recital concert platform- with artists also performing at venues such as London’s Wigmore Hall and Carnegie Hall in New York.
Each month they present a concert of the highest calibre in the Baxter Concert Hall, providing the best acoustics for the best music.
The evenings are presented in an intimate friendly way, with musicians often introducing their music to the audience and afterwards available to greet and answer questions from the concert goers, making these evenings unique and connected.
It is the mandate of the series to ensure these concerts are affordable to all and as such subsidise the ticket prices to more than half of what they would normally be.
Wheelchair positions are located in the Theatre (stalls), Concert Hall and Golden Arrow Studio Theatre. Please inform Computicket at the time of booking if you need a wheelchair space. Toilets for patrons with wheelchairs are located in the public toilets at the far end of the Main Foyer.
Parking for people with wheelchairs is located at the Baxter Road and Burg Road entrances. A lift for wheelchairs in the Main Foyer allows access to the restaurant. Please contact the Front of House Manager on 021 680 3967 if you need assistance.
