Choral concert to complete annual ‘choir week’

2016-07-06 06:00

HERMANNSBURG will be vibrating with choral singing during the first week of July as music lovers from all over South Africa meet for their annual “choir week”, which involves over 100 choristers.

The South African Heinrich Schütz Association was founded in 1968 with the aim of promoting choral church music in South Africa. To achieve this, the association, over the past 48 years, has presented an annual choir week in various venues throughout South Africa and this year it is once again in Hermannsburg.

To ensure the continuing high standard, professional choir masters are invited from Germany, and musical director this year is Markus Uhl from Heidelberg, a lecturer at Freiburg, Heidelberg and Weimar. The repertoire ranges from early 16th century music to present-day compositions.

On Saturday 9 July at 5pm choir week will culminate in a one-hour concert at St Peter­’s Lutheran Church, 283 Voortrekker Street, Greytown. Entrance is free, but a collection will be held at the end in support of the work the association does.
The choir will also perform in the Peter-Paul Church in Hermannsburg during the service on Sunday 10 July at 9am.

This is a wonderful opportunity to listen to some beautifully and professionally sung church music, right here in Greytown.
