Tygerberg Children’s Choir becomes festive

The Tygerberg Children’s Choir’s annual Christmas Concerts are the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit.

It’s time again for the highly acclaimed Tygerberg Children’s Choir’s very popular annual Christmas concerts. The choir celebrates its 38th year, and was crowned world champions in two categories at the 6th World Choir Games in Shaoxing, China during July this year. This major achievement catapulted the choir to the number 4 over-all position on the official Musica Mundi world ranking list for competition choirs.

The choir has, as usual, compiled a varied programme which will appeal to young and old. This year’s concert is entitled ‘The World Was Made Flesh’ and promises once again to be a spectacle of sound and light. Favourites such as Agnus Dei, O Holy Night, Mary’s Boy Chile, I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas, Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town, Christmastime and Leise Rieselt der Schnee can be heard. The concerts will also feature the superb vocal group The Voice of Angels, all members of Tygerberg Children’s Choir. Contributors: Marieta Bosman- Oosthuizen (soprano), Madri Gerber (violin) and Charl van Heyningen (narrator).

The choir has been under the baton of internationally respected conductor Hennie Loock since its inception, with Theresa Loock as accompanist.

The concerts will take place in the Endler Hall, University of Stellenbosch, on the following dates and times:

Sunday 14 November at 15h00
Sunday 21 November at 15h00
Sunday 28 November at 15h00
Sunday 12 December at 15h00

There will be an additional concert in the Cape Town City Hall on Friday 4 December at 20h00.

Tickets cost R80pp. Bookings: Yvonne Basson (tcc@mweb.co.za; 021 948 4046)

The choir’s brand new Christmas DVD will also be available at the performances.
