2017-11-30 06:01

THE Feather Market Organ Society presents its annual Great Christmas Concert in the Feather Market Centre at 13:00 on Thursday, December 7.

A selection of Christmas festive music will be played on the grand organ by Albert Troskie, Marilise van Rooyen, Rina Ras and Johan van Eck. The rich diversity of the organ’s Midi sounds will also be heard.

Mezzo soprano Anri Janse van Rensburg, accompanied by organist Johan Strydom, will sing, among others, the popular Alleluia by Mozart and Max Reger’s Maria Wie­genlied.

The well-known Port Elizabeth choir, Cantando@Algoa directed by Bouwer van Rooyen, will be heard in the lovely Christmas Lul-laby, Carol of the Bells and Cantate Domino.

A mass choir of 100 voices will sing four works, including the always popular Deo Gracias and Christmas Isn’t Christmas till it Happens in your Heart.

Hanlie Young (piano) and Troskie (organ) will duet in two exciting arrangements of Joy to the World and O Come, all ye Faithful.

An interesting atmosphere will be created with a performance of Christmas carols by Piet de Villiers (concertina) and guitarists Rudolph Britz and Neels van Rooyen, while the Nigerian countertenor, Segun Soyemi, will sing two Handel arias, including Largo.

At this feast of Christmas music, funds will be raised for charity.

Admission is R50 for adults, R40 for pensioners and R20 for children. Tickets will be available at the door.
