Two concerts by legendary international violinist and now conductor, Pinchas Zukerman, and his wife, the pre-eminent South African born Canadian cellist Amanda Forsyth accompanied by the Johannesburg Symphony Orchestra (JPO), scheduled for the Linder Auditorium later this month were placed in jeopardy as funds allocated to the JPO were not forthcoming.

Members of this orchestra rallied around the JPO to the save the Linder concert dates by lending their kindness and support by playing in collaboration with 22 members of the JPO.

All proceeds of these 2 concerts will go to the JPO as a gesture of support for the orchestra and its members.

Thanks to the efforts of the USSO and friends of the JPO, Johannesburg audiences will have the opportunity to experience the musical genius of Pinchas Zukerman together with Amanda Forsyth. To avoid disappointment, book now at Computicket.
