ABOUT

Die koor met 80 stemme bied ’n program van bekende en nuwe koorwerke, waaronder die première van twee nuwe opdragwerke, Oculi Autem eius deur die Hongaarse komponis Levente Gyöngyösi en Quid hic Agis, Elia? deur die Suid-Afrikaner Franco Prinsloo. Albei stukke maak gebruik van Gregoriaanse cantus en betrek die elemente van wind, vuur en aardbewings. Die konsert word afgesluit met drie ikoniese liedjies, nuut verwerk deur André van der Merwe: “Special Star” van Mango Groove, “And So it Goes” van Billy Joel en “Somebody to Love” van Queen.


The 80-strong Voces Cordis choir premieres two new commissioned works: Oculi Autem eius by Hungarian composer, Levente Gyöngyösi, and Quid hic Agis, Elia? by South African composer Franco Prinsloo.

They will also perform three new arrangements by Van der Merwe of “Special Star” (Mango Groove), “And So it Goes” (Billy Joel) and “Somebody to Love” (Queen).
