Crossbones Trombones @ Artscape Theatre Centre, Cape Town

Event date: 3/23/2024 5:30 PM Export event

On 23 March 2024, Artscape Theatre Centre in Cape Town plays host to a blend of cultural exchange and musical prowess with the arrival of Crossbones Trombones. This acclaimed professional trombone ensemble consisting of young musicians from Flanders, Belgium, is set to charm with their refreshing sounds and contagious energy on stage. For free tickets call the Artscape Box office at +27 21 421 7839.

Crossbones Trombones is bringing their expertise to the Artscape Theatre Centre during a two-day stop in Cape Town. On Friday, they will host an interactive workshop in which they will convey their passion to music to children and young people from Cape Town and surrounding areas. On Saturday 23 March, at 5.30 pm until 6.45pm, the ensemble will perform on stage with South African trombonist Karen Hess.

The event is organised by the Consulate General of Belgium in Cape Town and the Delegation of Flanders in Southern Africa, in collaboration with Artscape Theatre Centre, on the occasion of the Belgian presidency of the Council of the European Union, that runs from January till June 2024.  

The objective for the workshop and concert is deeply rooted in the vision upheld by the European Union and the fundamental workings of the diplomatic posts in South Africa: connecting people whilst fostering meaningful dialogue and collaboration between individuals and communities across borders.

By intertwining their devotion to music and the trombone with collaboration and exchange wherever they perform, Crossbones Trombones embodies this spirit. The event is more than a one-off performance. It is an inspiring educational exchange that not only entertains, but also nurtures and builds the future of music appreciation and talent.
