'Making Music Together' is an exhibition of 30 black and white prints journalling the extensive community, education and outreach of the busy KZN Philharmonic Orchestra, and it will be on display at the Durban Art Gallery, 2nd Floor, City Hall, Anton Lembede Street, until 30 April 2016 [Pics by Val Adamson: KZNPO second violin cadet player, Zos George Ntuli, introduces his violin to learners from iThemba Academy in Hillcrest after a schools’ performance & Choral conductor, Khulekani Khumalo, takes guidance from Maestro Wolfram Christ during the KZNPO conducting master-class]

Working closely with the Durban Art Gallery, an exhibition has been created to give gallery-visitors special insight into some of the other activities that take up the time of the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra, namely presenting performances, workshops, master-classes and mentoring programmes in various community venues, school halls, rehearsal rooms, old age homes and informal spaces across the province. The Print Room in the gallery has been transformed into a mock orchestra rehearsal room, with 30 carefully chosen black and white prints displayed on music stands. 

The KZN Philharmonic Orchestra is no stranger to helping the community and using the gift of music to touch people's lives, as they also have a campaign called Symphony of Hope, which enables them to stage free concerts to KZN's marginalised. The orchestra also performs to schools in various cities, suburbs and rural areas around the province, ultimately effecting more than 30,000 students a year.
