“Cape Philharmonic and Verdi's "Requiem"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2009

I went to the City Hall twice during my stay in Cape Town. The first was to walk on the balcony where Nelson Mandela gave his first speech after being released from prison in 1990. The second was to hear a performance by the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra. Although I am not an expert on acoustics, the hall I believe was quite good in this regard as was the performance.
