KZN Philharmonic Orchestra
KZN Philharmonic Orchestra - classical music concerts
Ably led by Bongani Tembe for the past 18 years, the KZN Philharmonic has, through its message of hope and unity, continued to inspire its audiences and contribute toward social cohesion.
A professional orchestra of around 70 multi-national musicians, the orchestra enjoys a reputation for excellence and innovation among South African orchestras, resulting in a loyal support base from the local community, regular concert subscribers and visitors to the province.
Founded in 1983 and restructured in April 1998 as an independent viable entity according to the new South African Arts and Culture dispensation policy, the Orchestra travels extensively and has undertaken highly successful tours to Europe and other parts of Africa.
The Orchestra is primarily funded by grants from eThekwini Municipality, the KZN Government, the National Department of Arts and Culture via the National Arts Council, and the National Lotteries Distribution Trust Fund. The remainder of its income is derived from sponsorships, donations, box office and hire outs.
The World Symphony Series (WSS), which features world-renowned artists such as Renee Fleming, Pinchas Zuckerman, Vladimir Ashkenazy and Zubin Mehta, as well as top South African musicians such as Sibongile Khumalo, Fikile Mvinjelwa, Anton Nel and Ben Schoeman, forms an integral part of the orchestra's annual program.
