Gala Concerts: A Classical Autumn

The leaves turn copper red, mahogany, and golden; the mornings are crisp, and you start thinking about taking out warmer blankets and jackets for the chill in the evening air. That extraordinary hint of autumn is seen in the change of the sun shining on the grass in the afternoons and is also reflected in so many classical music compositions.

In 2022 the Wakkerstroom Music Festival hosted two gala concerts according to government Covid-19 restrictions and regulations. It proved to be a hit with the audiences because the festival could showcase an excerpt of all the concerts at the festival and not only the traditional handful.

Gala concert I will shine the spotlight on the artists performing on Friday and Saturday, and Gala Concert II will feature the artists performing from Sunday to Tuesday. Both gala concerts will be presenting the wide variety of classical music genres and exceptional high performance standard at the festival. A not to be missed event.
