VOX Cape Town is the Mother City’s most active and versatile choral collective. This year alone, they have performed at venues as diverse as the Maynardville Open-Air Theatre, the Baxter Concert Hall, the Two Oceans Aquarium and the Endler Hall in Stellenbosch, presenting a rich smorgasbord of choral music in immersive and imaginative ways. In this presentation at Christ Church, Constantia, entitled ‘VOX 2023: A Musical Yearbook’, the group will present highlights from its musical adventures this year. Their two recent signature performances will take centre stage. The first of these, Eternal Echoes, a musical journey spanning the centuries presented in the candlelit grandeur of the Bishops Memorial Chapel, comprised sacred music by Rachmaninoff, Sir John Tavener, William Byrd and others. This will be contrasted with Timeless Whispers, their recent musical tribute to the South African Karoo, evoking the timeless allure, rugged landscapes and sparkling night skies of that majestic region. The performance will conclude with a nod to the future, as VOX presents some of the music that they will be singing in their annual Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols at St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church on 10 December.
