JOHANN STRAUSS WALTZ KING
Gauteng Philharmonic Orchestra
Fri 21 Aug 20:00 / Sun 23 Aug 15:00

Few artist families dominated the light music scene of the 19th century in the same way as the Strauss dynasty. And even 150 years after the death of the “Waltz King” Johann Strauss senior and over 100 years after the passing of his son Johann Strauss junior, their dance compositions still pack concert halls around the world with throngs of eager spectators. This will be the first Gauteng Philharmonic Orchestra Strauss Gala.
