Concert in the Park in Port Elizabeth
Despite the blustering Port Elizabeth wind, a wonderful afternoon was had by the Prime Timers who attended the Concert in the Park at Victoria Park on Saturday afternoon. The PE Philharmonic Orchestra, under the able baton of conductor, Richard Cock, entertained us to some superb music. The afternoon started with a group of youngsters from Booysens Primary School who are being tutored as part of a violin project – what amazing talent from these talented youngsters.
Tracy-Lee Oliver and Sampson Diamond were the guest performers – with Tracy’s golden voice and Sampson’s incredible talent on the violin, we certainly were treated to a concert of a high calibre that even the wind could not dampen. Richards relaxed style and easy rapport with the audience both young and old ensured that everyone had a great time.
Next month, Prime Timers will again be treated to the Eastern Cape Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Richard Cock at the Last Night of the Proms at the Feathermarket Centre. Prime Timers will be enjoying a delicious 4 course buffet at the Humewood Hotel before heading off to the Feathermarket.
