If you have a few hours free on Sunday and are in the mood for a bit of culture make your way to UCT’s Hiddingh Campus for ‘Music in the City’ with David Earl and the Odeion Quartet.

This will be the University of Cape Towns Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts second Music in the City concert and features the Stellenbosch–born, internationally renowned pianist and composer David Earl, guest cellist Marian Lewin and the Odeion Quartet.

Mr Earl who studied at Trinity College of Music and now lives in Cambridge, England will perform his own Piano Quintet in B flat major and Schubert’s String Quintet in C major will also be performed.  The Odeion Quartet, from the University of Bloemfontein has performed to critical acclaim across the country and plays an important role in the development of symphony orchestra and classical music training in the Free State.

Music in the City

GIPCA (Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts) was originally launched just over two years ago in December 2008.  Named after Sir Donald Gordon who invested millions to kick start the Institute, GIPCA aims to enhance the arts at UCT and facilitate a range of collaborative and interdisciplinary projects that use art to explore culture and knowledge.

GIPCA has various exciting ventures on the bubble and Music in the City is one of them.  The project aims to bring music back to the City by reviving Hiddingh Hall, one of Cape Towns most historical and beloved concert venues.

Hiddingh Hall is at Hiddingh Campus on Orange Street.  The ninety minute performance is free of charge and parking is available.
