2020 is an auspicious year; musicians and music-lovers all over the world will be celebrating the 250th year since the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven - a universal genius who transformed the musical universe. Beethoven's great spirit sought to encompass the ideals of the French Revolution and the new spirit of humanism that was sweeping the world in which he lived. His music, passionate and personal, reveals the power that music has to convey the deepest emotions as well as a philosophy of life.
This year, the Johannesburg Musical Society joins with the global music community in featuring much of Beethoven's music. However, our listeners will still enjoy programmes that are varied and which feature the music of other composers.
As always, the Johannesburg Musical Society offers up a veritable feast of music, performed by superb artists from all over the world.
Join music-lovers in the Linder Auditorium, St Andrews Road, Parktown - Johannesburg's most popular hall - to hear the superb classical concerts presented by the Johannesburg Musical Society.
Here, in the comfort of the Linder, you can sit back and listen to masterful performances by artists from all over the world. Secure parking is yet another advantage offered by this venue, and you can also enjoy a glass of pre-concert wine or an excellent cappuccino and a slice of cake in the adjoining 27 Degrees Café, where you can also partake of an excellent pre-concert dinner.
All Johannesburg Musical Society concerts are open to the public, who may buy tickets at the box office or pre-book them through Computicket. However, if you become a subscriber you'll enjoy the privilege of a permanent and pre-allocated seat at each concert as well as a free programme. A further benefit is that, as a member of the JMS, you'll be paying up to R45 less per ticket.
