Klein Karoo Klassique

Klein Karoo Klassique

The Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees or as it is also known, the Klein Karoo National Arts Festival, is one of the biggest arts and culture festivals in South Africa. This festival is predominantly an Afrikaans festival but there are a number of English performers and artists. Over the years the festival office has presented a variety of projects, the second of which is the , Klein Karoo Klassique which combines classical music with food, wine and art from the Klein Karoo. The classical music offering includes approximately 10 concerts, performed in various venues. The concerts range from a performances by the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra to chamber and oratorio music.

Oudtshoorn once again plays host to this wonderful experience from the 9 to 12 August 2012 and visitors will once again have the opportunity to taste ostrich, lamb and veal dishes, biltong, boerewors, local cheeses and chocolate, olives, brandy and wonderful wines, all of which are local specialities from the Little Karoo. One of the best things about the town of Oudtshoorn is that it is in the Klein Karoo and that means that it within an hours drive from the town itself, you can either be at the coast at Mossel Bay or George, or inland and in the mountains on your way to the Great Karoo. It is the only place in the world can you find so much floral diversity within such close proximity; a semi-desert barely 80 kilometres away from a coastal rainforest. To start to list the various dining establishments in and around Oudtshoorn that offer a truly Klein Karoo experience would be an enormous task which would be sure to miss one or two out, so our advice is to get yourself to Oudtshoorn with enough time to relax, and enjoy the music, tastes and sights of the Klein Karoo.

In 2010 the Klein Karoo Klassique saw 80% of the available tickets being sold and 2,726 individuals attending 11 concerts. This number grew in 2011 and its popularity is set to continue growing as the festival matures.
