Pumeza Matshikiza

Lyric soprano Pumeza Matshikiza will perform at the Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concert on Sunday March 22. Matshikiza studied at the University of Cape Town and now lives in Berlin. Her debut album Voice of Hope was an eclectic arrangement of arias by Mozart and Puccini as well as traditional South African songs, while her follow up Arias showcased her later operatic roles from Puccini to Purcell. Concert-goers will be treated to some of her favourite classical and African arias. Matshikiza’s performances will be accompanied by tenor Sipho Fubesi, the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra and Cape Town Opera Chorus, under the baton of Jeremy Silver. Outdoor sunset concerts are held at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden every Sunday throughout the 2019/2020 summer. Tickets cost from R170 to R220. Book through Webtickets.
