The Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra’s many strong partnerships, collaborations and supporters show that together we can make a difference to the communities we serve. We are proud to call these individuals, corporates, trust and foundations friends of the CPO as we continue to strive to enrich through music the lives of young people denied the opportunity in past years, offer performance and career opportunities and achieve our artistic and outreach goals by taking outstanding music to new fields.

The CPO salutes those who believe in our mission.


The CPO salutes those concertgoers and supporters who generously and quickly donated the value of their season tickets for both the  Autumn and Winter seasons to the CPO and in some cases much more in response to our situation. We are particularly grateful to those who are making a generous monthly donation.

The CPO also thanks South African artist Marlene von Dürckheim for the second painting she has given us to be sold in aid of CPO funds. It was auctioned by Strauss Fine Arts, achieving R30 000 on which Strauss waived its commission. A painting was also donated by Don Glass.
