Feel the spirit for music fun

2019-08-14 06:02

FUN, fellowship and lots of spirit will run through the Pietermaritzburg Amateur Music Society (Pams) Feel The Spirit concert at Cordwalles Preparatory School in Pietermaritzburg on August 25.

The programme includes several favourites from the choral repertoire, but this time the focus is on secular and entertaining music.

Five famous evocative spirituals from a cycle of seven spirituals, Feel the Spirit by John Rutter, will get the spirit moving. Rutter arranged the music for mezzo-soprano soloist, choir and orchestra/piano. Japan-born Nafas Frenzel will be the guest soloist for the occasion.

The second part of the programme includes music from Broadway musicals — a medley from Oklahoma and highlights from The Sound of Music. Also included will be the Exodus Song from the 1960 film Exodus and the old-time favourite Hello Dolly from the American romantic comedy musical film based on the Broadway production of the same name.

The Drakondale Girls’ Choir will join the Pams choir and perform a few songs from their light and entertaining music programme. Botes Gresse will conduct the Pams and Drakondale Girls’ choirs, and Jacques Heyns and Matthew Hoffman will accompany the choirs.

Time: 3.30 pm. Tickets are R70 and available at the door. Contact Helen White (chair) at 083 264 5705 or Judy Lawrence (secretary) at buzzman@absamail.co.za for more information.
