TYGERBERG CHILDRENS’ CHOIR
DR CHURCH
TICKETS R100 EACH, AT COMPUTICKET OR VILLIERSDORP TOURISM

For almost four glorious decades the Tygerberg Children's Choir, based in Cape Town's Northern Suburbs and under the baton of internationally acclaimed conductor Hennie Loock with Theresa Loock as arranger and accompanist, has taken lovers of choral music on a very special musical journey. The choir regularly performs with great aplomb for heads of state, princes, kings and queens and is one of South-Africa's proudest export products. The choir has won every major international choral competition since its inception in 1972, and its unsurpassed legato singing, maturity of sound, musical power and dynamic interpretation of very difficult material makes Tygerberg Children's Choir a foremost exponent in the world of international competition choirs.

In July 2010, these highly talented children participated in the world's flagship choral competition, the 6th World Choir Games in Shaoxing, China, where they received two gold medals and were crowned Double World Champions - in the Religions of the World and Folklore categories. The World Choir Games is widely regarded as the 'Olympic Games" for choirs, and only the very best choirs from all over the world are invited to participate. The fact that Tygerberg Children's Choir is a children's choir aged between 10 and 14, and that these results were obtained against much older choirs, makes the achievement even more remarkable. Being crowned world champions in two categories catapulted the choir to the 4th position overall on the official Musica Mundi World Ranking List for choirs. These remarkable children are truly CHAMPIONS IN SONG


15H00

LITTLE WINDS QUARTET
ST AUGUSTINE’S ANGLICAN CHURCH
TICKETS R100 EACH, AT COMPUTICKET OR VILLIERSDORP TOURISM

“The musicians in the Little Winds have all performed together many times in various orchestral and chamber music capacities, and particularly in the wind quintet format. Apart from full-time professional musicians this wind quintet also includes an engineer and an actuary. Bridget is the former principal flute of the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra and is now a freelance professional flautist and lecturer at UCT’s College of Music. Simon occupies one of the bassoon positions in the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra. John is a well-established freelance performer and teacher, being head of the Woodwind Department of the Beau Soleil Music Centre. Len is the engineer and David is the actuary; both of whom are experienced part-time musicians who spend as much time as possible taking part in musical performances.“
