Market with Bok magic

Head to the Dorp Street Sunday Market this weekend for clothing, arts and crafts, jewellery, a farmer’s section, food and entertainment for the youngsters. But that’s not all. While Bok Radio will be launching their very own wine range, come say hello to a few old Bok players and celebrate the anniversary of South Africa’s 2019 World Cup win.

Stellenbosch Konservatorium presents violist Lynn Rudolph and pianist José Dias in a stunning programme of rarely heard works for viola and piano. A competitor of the violin for repertoire, the viola has a deep and lush voice that has had composers attracted to its unique qualities, producing wonderfully personal and engaging repertoire in its own right. The programme includes music from Nadia Boulanger, Rebecca Clarke and South Africa’s very own Hendrik Hofmeyr.

When: 15 November 2020 @ 16:00

Access: A link to the online concert will be posted on social media and www.endler.sun.ac.za. The concert will be available online until 22 November 2020.
