Brahms Ein Deutsches Requiem
Principal guest conductor of the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, Bernhard Gueller continues to inspire musicians and audiences with his profound and exciting interpretations, “a favoured conductor of both players and audiences, undoubtedly because of his carefully prepared but always musically rewarding performances”.
Arline Jaftha’s career began in the New Apostolic Church before joining Cape Town Opera’s Vocal Ensemble in 2003. She then joined the CTO Opera Studio and became a soloist appearing over the years in many major CTO productions. She has also appeared alongside international stars such as Bryn Terfel and Johan Botha.
Conroy Scott (baritone) studied singing with Brad Liebl at the SA College of Music and double bass with Zoltan Kovats. He has performed widely as a singer in oratorio, opera and as a jazz singer both here and abroad. He returned earlier this year from six years singing with an acclaimed male quartet, Soul Avenue, across Europe to China.
