Two top musicians at recital
The Port Elizabeth Music Society has invited cellist Peter Martens and pianist Bryan Wallick to a recital on Wednesday, October 17, in the NMU South Campus Auditorium.
PE Music Society president Dr Erika Bothma said she was excited about the concert, which would start at 7.30pm.

The following works are included:
● Bach’s Solo Cello Suite No 3 in C Major, BWV 1009;
