Why Couch Concerts?

Why Couch Concerts?

We’re for Artists

When Couch Concerts began, it was as a way for us to help support our friends and colleagues in the music industry through an incredibly difficult lockdown. Many had lost performance opportunities and all future prospects were uncertain. So, we asked ourselves a simple question, “How can we help?”. This is the question that shaped our entire philosophy as we sought to utilise online performance platforms to offer musicians a virtual stage where they could perform - and audiences could enjoy - fabulous music.

No-one cares about your special day like you do. Whether it’s a wedding, birthday, conference - or anything else you can imagine - we know how hard it is to put on something amazing and we’d like to make it easier for you.

What People are Saying

  • "What a wonderful idea Couch Concerts has been; to give a voice and a platform to performers and beloved colleagues!"

    Louis Zurnamer - Resident Musical Director at Pieter Toerien Productions and Classical Pianist
  • "Couch Concerts provided a safe space for musicians and artists to create in a time when they were mostly forgotten about and made to fend for themselves. Jarryd and Jess always make you feel comfortable and well taken care of and make it very easy to enjoy the new format of music in the digital age! They also provide those with loved ones overseas a chance to see their nearest and dearest perform for once, a privilege lots of people miss out on. I highly recommend working with Couch Concert and am really excited to see where this venture will lead!"

    Amy Campbell - Professional Singer and Vocal Coach at LAMTA
  • "In a time when most concert halls, theaters and churches were locked up and silent, Couch Concerts selflessly opened their (small) home and gave performance opportunities to a line of accomplished and upcoming musicians to share and practice their art. The Couch Concerts series has given me purpose, inspiration and a sense of belonging to a live and virtual community of friends and colleagues who care about good quality music and would do whatever it takes for this to continue into the future!"

    Valentina Vorster - Professional Freelance Violinist and Teacher
  • "They treat their musicians like royalty. An enormous thank you goes out to Couch Concerts and the West’s for their undying dedication to bettering the lives of musicians in Cape Town."

    Carin Bam - Professional Oboist at Cape Philharmonic Orchestra
