Sacred Songs a Capella


The Cape Town Chamber Choir brings their current concert programme, Sacred Song, to Franschhoek on Saturday 8 June at 16h00 in the Dutch Reformed Church.

This will be the choir’s first concert in Franschhoek. The Choir annually connects with music societies and groups, to bring the concert to local audiences. They have had successful performances in Montagu, Tulbagh, Hermanus and Napier over the past few years.

Laura de Kok, Chairperson of the Choir, says Franschhoek was chosen for this performance as it has established itself in the Western Cape as a chamber music focal point with the Dutch Reformed Church at its heart.

The first part of the choir’s current programme focuses on Sacred Songs by German Romantic composers (e.g. Mendelssohn, Rheinberger, Grieg). It includes the Three Sacred Hymns by Rheinberg, featuring the beautiful Abendlied. The second part of our concert brings it closer to home, as they present sacred songs by South African composers. The beautiful Three Nocturnes by Peter Klatzow leads this part, followed by Hans Huyssen, Niel van der Watt and Hendrik Hofmeyr. The last work on the programme, Gebet, was composed and dedicated to the CTCC by Rudolf de Beer.

Tickets are available on Quicket, and on the day at the venue (Snapscan & cash). (No card facilities).  Adults – R150 Students & pensioners R120

Concertgoers are invited to join the choir for a glass of wine afterwards.
