Baroque in the Bush

Sadly, because of Covid-19, we’ve had to cancel our Baroque in the Bush events in 2020 and 2021, but we’re really hoping that we can pull things out of the bag in 2022.  We are running a waiting list (the folks who were booked for 2020 were rolled over to this year, and again to next year), so email us and we’ll add you with pleasure … email address below.  Meanwhile, here’s some info to whet your appetite.

Baroque in the Bush is a sublime three days of Baroque concerts at Shingwedzi in the Kruger Park, with 16 musicians under the direction of South Africa’s favourite maestro Dr Richard Cock.  Since this year has been cancelled, 2021 will be our 26th year, and we’ll again be running three events back-to-back.

Shingwedzi is the perfect venue – it accommodates the optimal number of people, and has a large thatched veranda which serves as our concert hall, looking out over the Shingwedzi River bed.

September is sublime in Kruger – the days are warm enough for an afternoon laze by the pool, the evenings are crisp and star-studded, the trees are budding, and sometimes we’re lucky enough to get a rainstorm.  All in all, a unique way to experience the beauty of the African bush.
