Baroque in the Bush

We are going full-steam ahead for Baroque in the Bush next year, 2023.  We are running a waiting list (the bookings from the cancelled years have been rolled over to 2023), 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.  2023 will be our 26th year, and we’ll again be running three events back-to-back.

Shingwedzi has been the perfect venue: it accommodates the optimal number of people, has a lovely picnic area where we have our buffet dinners, and boasts a large thatched veranda which serves as our concert hall, looking out over the Shingwedzi River bed.  The thatch is currently under repair, and will be done in time for Baroque in September 2023.

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.
