Carpe Musicam! Orchestra in the Garden

Carpe Musicam! is at present a community-based orchestra of 32 members.
Our repertoire for this event will be themed on celebrating our fifth birthday, life, the outdoors and everything that goes with the retreat of the COVID-19 virus and the opening up of our lives once again.
The music is light music hits such as In the Mood, Wonderful World, St. Elmo’s Fire, Yellow Submarine, Blue Moon, la Cumparsita, a Sinatra hit medley – nothing heavy or hard to listen to…
It will be the perfect occasion to enjoy a few afternoon hours in the Garden while enjoying good, fun music and the company of friends and family and tucking into your picnic hamper, liquid or otherwise!
Cash tickets at the gate:
R50 for adults
Free to Scholars
Please bring your own chairs, blanket and picnic basket.
