The present lot was donated by the artist and the proceeds from the sale of this lot will benefit The Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra.

The Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO) has been the backbone of all classical music in Cape Town since its formation in 1914, the cultural jewel in the city’s crown and a socio-economic asset. However, to ensure that the orchestra remains world-class and enable it to continue its activities, it needs financial support.  The CPO offers a future for its young musicians, most of whom come from disadvantaged communities and whose lives have now been transformed. For careers to be created for the hundreds of talented young musicians in the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra’s education and development projects, the CPO needs to be sustainable and secure.

Farsighted people such as Marlene van Dürckheim value the CPO. They support the CPO not only as a symphony orchestra but as a multi-functional orchestra which performs a variety of concerts including crossover, pop, jazz and rock, as well as community and schools concerts along with accompanying opera, ballet and musicals, and its vast educational programs from grassroots to full youth orchestras.
