The Philharmonia Choir of Cape Town

The Philharmonia Choir of Cape Town is one of Cape Town’s oldest and best-loved choral groups.

For the first time in the history of the Philharmonia Choir, we have had to cancel our performances due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We will keep you informed of our performances as and when they return. 

 

Phimharmonis choir of Cape town

 

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.
