DAVID Orr, head of music and culture at Epworth, is hoping that concert-goers will be dancing in the aisles during the Let the People Sing! concert in the Pietermaritzburg City Hall on Thursday, October 22 at 7 pm.

Devised by Orr and Frenchye Magee­, Epworth’s chaplain, the concert­ of popular hymns and inspirational songs will be performed by the Michaelhouse Chapel Choir, the Howick Singers and the Epworth High School and Prep School choirs.

They will be accompanied by Christopher Cockburn on organ, pianist Christopher Duigan, brass players Malcolm McKinley, Clair Cumming and Andrew Arbuckle, Bernard Kisby-Green on timpani, Nafas Agha on cymbals and Serina Armstrong and Pierre Frenzel on violin­. Orr will conduct. The choirs will sing solo pieces and combine for four massed choir works during the concert, which will feature a range of traditional and contemporary music.

“It’s not a religious event,” says Orr, “but is a festival of sacred music ranging from Siyahamba to Thine Be the Glory.”

The concert, supported by Parklane SuperSpar, CPW Printers, The Witness and Duigan’s Music Revival, will benefit the Epwort­h Foundation Bursary Fund. Tickets range from R80 (for children and pupils) and R100 (for adults) upwards. Early booking is advised. To book phone Parklane SuperSpar at 033 342 3487.

Secure parking is provided in the city hall precinct
