For millennia, trees have been associated with growth, strength and individuality, with their deep, entangled roots and wide-reaching branches also representing the interconnectedness of life.

Inspired by the unique biodiversity of Hermanus, nestled as it is between commanding mountains and the majestic ocean, we present an immersive programme of choral music celebrating the splendour of the natural world. Bringing together the sublime polyphonic textures of the Renaissance, spirited folk songs and music composed for the silver screen, this specially-curated presentation will enrich and uplift – encouraging each of us to safeguard our biosphere while we still can.

About FynArts

“Join us from 7 to 17 June 2024 for an exuberant celebration of creativity in all its forms – visual, musical, literary, culinary, performance. The programme is bursting with delights, from theatre and live music in every genre to art exhibitions, talks, workshops and food and wine experiences.”

The FynArts Festival started out as a ‘tourism’ event proposed by Mary Faure, the then-chairperson of the Hermanus Tourism Bureau. The aim was to create an arts event that would attract discerning visitors who would spend more than one night in Hermanus during the quiet winter months. In June 2013, the first FynArts, a fusion of arts festival and winter school, debuted to a warm and generous reception. Since then, the festival has developed a track record of presenting a quality programme of exhibitions, concerts, talks and presentations, workshops, demonstrations and films, as well as events for children. Over the past years, the focus of FynArts has shifted focus from being a ‘tourism’ event into becoming a top quality, classic-feel arts-related festival. Read more on the Hermanus FynArts website.
