SONGS of the Rose, featuring guest artist Christopher Duigan (piano), weaves together music by a number of South African composers.

At the heart of the programme is a sacred cantata entitled Mother of Godby Stephen Carletti. This eight-movement work will be premiered by the Epworth High School Choir accompanied by string orchestra and piano in these two performances.

The event take place on Tuesday and Wednesday (June 20-21) at 6.45 pm at Epworth Chapel. Tickets cost R100 for adults and R60 pupils.

This is the third Epworth commission in two years. Tying in with the theme of the cantata is an early Baroque setting of the Ave Mariaby Italian composer, Giulio Caccini, and a piano improvisation on the Annunciation Carol. There are other works on the programme by Simon Bester, Duigan, Grant McLachlan and David Orr. A choral arrangement of Amanda McBroom’s popular song, The Rose, originally performed by Bette Midler, concludes the concert. Following a public response to Songs of Light in 2016, there will be two performances of Songs of the Rose.

For tickets contact Amanda Lamprecht at functions@epworth.co.za or phone 033 846 2576. Pre-booking is essential. — Supplied.
