Overstrand Arts/Kunste (OAK) is delighted to have found an alternative to the usual live music concerts they offered regularly at the Municipal Auditorium, and which will hopefully resume in 2021.

In collaboration with Concerts Connect, a unique live-stream concert platform that aims to connect music societies with audiences and artists, you can now enjoy world-class virtual performances in the comfort of your own home via your computer. Professional cameramen and sound technicians ensure that the visuals and audio of these live broadcasts are of the highest quality.

To enhance the performance, the broadcasts will commence at 15:30 with an interview with the artist, which will include background information about the programme and recording setting. The actual concert starts at 16:00.

The first virtual performance kicked off on Sunday 24 May, and will be followed by a concert featuring Nina Schumann on piano on Sunday 7 June, with an eclectic programme of sketches by Bach, Haydn, Debussy and Rachmaninoff. On Sunday 21 June, the piano duo, Luis Magalhaes and Nina Schumann will present a varied programme including Chopin’s Sonata No.2.

A ticket at R100 will provide access to this unforgettable musical experience for everyone in your household to enjoy. Bookings can be made via quicket, Facebook (Concerts Connect SA) or the website, www.brconcerts.com/concertsconnect (select the OAK option when you make your booking). You can also follow OAK on Facebook for regular updates.
