The Rand Symphony Orchestra (RSO) has been a vibrant contributor to community classical music in Gauteng and nearby concert venues for nearly 30 years.
The RSO offers musicians the opportunity to play ensemble work and perform in regular public concerts for their own enjoyment and that of the community.
The Rand Symphony Orchestra is a community orchestra, comprised of people who freely give their time to play, because they love music.
Carl Henn is the conductor of the RSO.
The programme at the Etienne Rousseau Theatre consists of Brahms violin concerto, the fourth symphony by Mozart en Ravel’s Bolero.
The violin soloist in the Brahms is the South African born Zanta Hofmeyr. Zanta graduated from the Juilliard School in New York. She studied with Dorothy Delay and Hyo Kang, Vincent Fritelli, Eva Jeskova and Masao Kawasaki. She performed her New York debut recital at Carnegie Recital Hall (Weil Recital Hall) in 1985 as winner of the Artists International competition. She has performed in the USA, UK, Netherlands, Malta, Namibia and South Africa.
