Philharmonia choir

 

Join the Philharmonia Choir of Cape Town on Saturday 13 August at 19h30 as we perform two majestic and beloved choral works: Vivaldi’s Gloria and Mozart’s Requiem .

Richard Cock will be conducting these beautifully contrasting works. From the joyful and uplifting Gloria – arguably Vivaldi’s most popular choral work – that rejoices in the significance of God’s incarnation in the figure of his Son, to the terrifyingly vivid images of judgment and mourning in Mozart’s iconic Requiem,  these hopeful and triumphant works transport audiences through the soaring highs and dizzying lows of the human condition.

ABOUT THE PHILHARMONIA CHOIR OF CAPE TOWN

 

Philharmonia Choir 2022

 

In 2017, we celebrated our 50thAnniversary ! The choir was formed in 1967 and has been described as “the jewel in Cape Town’s musical crown.” It comprises more than 120 amateur singers, of all ages and backgrounds, who seek to contribute to the South African musical landscape by performing a diverse and challenging repertoire of music.

Each year, the choir performs three or four major choral works and a few smaller concerts, including some at outreach events. It typically performs in grand historical venues such as the Cape Town City Hall, St. George’s Cathedral, the Bishops Chapel and Groote Kerk. It has also sung in popular public areas, including Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and the Oude Libertas Amphitheatre.

The Philharmonia Choir has had a number of important engagements with visiting international artists, including Lord Yehudi Menuhin, Luciano Pavarotti and Renee Fleming, and conductors John Rutter and the late Sir David Willcocks. We have collaborated with some South Africa’s best professional soloists and conductors including Violina Anguelov, Sunnyboy Dladla, Levy Sekgapane, George Stevens, Arthur Swan, Pretty Yende, Richard Cock, Raymond Hughes and Vetta Wise. We have also had the privilege of performing regularly with the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra.

The choir has a history and reputation of engaging up-and-coming young artists as soloists, many of whom go on to develop international careers.
