SYMPHONIC SPLASHY (article first published : 2003-02-22)

Splashy Fen 2003 will be an event that truly caters for everybody’s musical taste! Adding orchestral splendour to the festival for the first time, the Gateway Philharmonic Orchestra will perform on April 27 2003 in the Splashy Fen Marquee.

Conducted by its director Philipp Maier, this 50 piece orchestra will perform the light classics and popular music for which it has become so well-known, giving the audience a taste of its symphonic rock repertoire.

The Gateway Philharmonic Orchestra comprises amateur, student and ex-professional players and has entertained audiences in and around Durban with its eclectic mix of music from the movies, Mozart, hits from Queen, Abba and The Beatles.

Appearing with Philipp Maier and the Gateway Philharmonic at Splashy 2003 will be guitar virtuoso David Birch who will play alongside Mali Sewell (drums), Chris Luke (saxophone) and Pilani Ngidi (bass). Cedric Van Den Schrick will handle the vocals. This will be a stellar line up of South African artists performing original compositions for band and orchestra.
