South Africa 2015

In July 2015, the Orchestra will embark on its tour of South Africa, bringing Scottish music to the tip of Africa, and experiencing the excitement of southern African Music.

Starting as guests of the Grahamstown International Festival of the Arts on 3 and 4 July, the 80-strong Orchestra will then travel down the Garden Route to George for their next performance. In Cape Town, the Orchestra are delighted to be guests of the Hout Bay Music Project for a day of workshopping leading to an exciting joint concert. On 9 July AFO will round off its trip to the Cape performing in concert with the Cape Town Youth Orchestra. In Johannesburg, concert highlights are a performance at the Linder Auditorium with the Johannesburg Youth Orchestra, and joining the service at Regina Mundi in Soweto.

And when not performing and rehearsing, players will experience some of the many wonders of South Africa; highlight include Kariga game reserve, Robben Island, Table Mountain, the Cradle of Mankind and the Elephant Sanctuary.



  1. Hi AFO team,

    Your tour looks like it will be amazing.
    Please let me know how I can arrange tickets to see you in Joburg at the Linder Auditorium.

    Thanks, looking forward to it.

    Ross Dold
