The internationally acclaimed Schönbrunn Palace Symphony Orchestra of Vienna is performing a once-in-a-lifetime outdoor concert on 8 April at Rhebokskloof, as part of their Symphony in Sea Major tour. The orchestra comprises a 9-piece ensemble symphony, including South African violinist Amora de Swardt.

Families and friends can enjoy a concert on the lawns by the lake. There’ll be a special kids’ soft play area and movie screening on the day. Guests can pre-book the special Easter weekend picnics, or can bring in their own food (no alcohol or any beverages allowed). There will be food trucks and vendors available on the day. 

Date: 8 April 2023
Book for concert: R250, R150 for kids u/12, free for kids u/5. Book via Rhebokskloof’s website


The two live classical music concerts, along with the rest of the Symphony in Sea Major tour, will raise funds for the efforts of the Fire Island Conservation, an essential turtle nesting site in Mozambique. The project aims to educate locals about conservation issues and to rehabilitate and protect sea turtles.
