Company: Drakensberg Boys Choir
FULL PRICE: R100
One of the leading boys choirs in the world, the Drakensberg Boys Choir is known for their varied, energetic performances and wide variety of musical styles.
“The world-renowned Drakensberg Boys Choir is a unique institution with a 51-year history. Throughout this time it has been a beacon of the performing arts in South Africa. The calibre of our old boys speaks for themselves: Deon Lotz (actor), Terence Bridgett (actor), Paul du Toit (author), Loyiso Bala (tenor), Phelo Bala (baritone), Dawid Boverhoff (musician) to name but a few.” – Bernard Krüger
The Choir will perform a selection of classical, African gospel and choral pop music. This will be followed by their unique, semi-theatrical presentation of indigenous South African music, centred on the theme of ‘Water=Life’. Audiences will be entertained with a wide variety of hauntingly beautiful music. The programme will include works to satisfy musical connoisseurs as well as arrangements of chart-topping pop songs and gospel numbers. The Choir will also incorporate some of the songs and music from Xhamissa into their programme, performed as a ‘concertante’.
