Jozi – there are just two opportunities remaining to enjoy Jonathan Roxmouth on stage again before he heads to international shores to re-join the World Tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera!


The Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra is delighted to present CANDELABRA CLASSICS – A Pianistic Salute to Liberace – featuring Jonathan Roxmouth and conducted by Eddie Clayton.   

This first-of-its-kind collaboration will be on stage at The Linder Auditorium in Parktown for two shows only on Friday 17 May at 19h30 and Sunday 19 May at 15h00.

What could be better than an evening of music, laughter and pure entertainment with South Africa’s own Mr Showmanship, Jonathan Roxmouth.

Join Jonathan and the full Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra as they play a mix of favourite classics, songs and spectacles Liberace made a household name. This is not an impersonation, Jonathan picks up where Liberace left off.

A family show with glitz and glamour, along with pure musicianship and unbridled fun!   Expect to hear everything from Chopin to Chopsticks, Beethoven to Boogie Boogie and some surprises along the way!

Programme highlights will include Addinsell, Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Gershwin, Grieg, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, Strauss and Tchaikovsky, ensuring it’s an evening or afternoon to savour and remember.

Roxmouth states excitedly; “Ever since I was introduced to the singular artistry of Liberace, I have always wanted to play his particular mix of popular music and classical music. To be able to that not just on the piano, but with the 60-piece Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra is beyond description.”

He continues;“ I am looking forward to my concert pianistic debut with them at the Linder Auditorium where I’ll get to stretch my classical muscles as well as play some real toe-tapping surprises”

Bongani Tembe, Chief Executive and Artistic Director of The Johannesburg Philharmonic concludes; “The Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra is delighted to once again be featuring Jonathan Roxmouth – the multi-award-winning singer, actor and pianist, this time on piano.

We are looking forward to Jonathan’s performance in Candelabra Classics at the Linder Auditorium and I am certain that Jonathan, with his exceptional talent, backed by the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra, will produce a thrilling concert.   These are certainly concerts not to be missed.”
