Pieter Schoeman, the South African violinist who is the leader of the London Philharmonic Orchestra for the past decade, returns home to be the soloist in the prestigious Huberte Rupert Memorial Concert with the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra. He will play the Bruch Violin Concerto. On the podium will be one of South Africa’s most exciting conductors, Chad Hendricks, the winner of the 3rd Len van Zyl Conductor’s Competition. Hendricks will also conduct the CPO in the Egmont Overture by Beethoven and Dvorak’s Symphony No 8 in G.
This is the 12th concert in the series which was devised to honor philanthropist Huberte Rupert and keep alive her dream to have young South African musicians making a name for themselves return home.
These talented young musicians show South African audiences what a wealth of talent is produced in this country and valued overseas.
Schoeman made his solo debut at the age of 10 with the Cape Town Symphony Orchestra, before going to America to study. He has performed worldwide as a soloist, including appearances with the LPO, and as a recitalist and chamber musician.
