Lively renditions of classical music from composers like Bach and Chopin filled the air on Table Mountain.

World-renowned pianist Franklin Larey said he was honoured to perform.

“It was quite a surprise for me at first, but being is fantastic and there is wonderful weather.”

Fourteen pianists from across the country enjoyed tickling the ivories and hundreds of visitors stopped to enjoy the concert.
