THE Pietermaritzburg City Hall will come alive with the spirit of Christmas when Music Revival hosts the world-renowned Drakensberg Boys’ Choir in a special festive season concert at 7pm on Tuesday, 29 November.

Simply titled Christmas, the concert is being co-ordinated by Christopher Duigan and Brad Glasspoole.

The Drakensberg Boys’ Choir, whose programme will include Gabriel’s Message, Three Kings of Orient, The Virgin Mary had a Baby Boy, Ave Maria and O, Holy Night, will be conducted by the recently appointed artistic director, Bernard Kruger, and Charlotte Botha.

The evening will also see the audience joining in the singing of traditional carols, including O Come All Ye Faithful, accompanied by the iconic city hall organ. David Orr, well-known organist and head of music at Epworth will be at the organ to lead the carols.

Lighting, now an integral part of the highly successful Music Revival City Hall concert series will be provided by Big Beat.

Music Revival’s Christmas, which will feature over 100 voices, is sponsored by Parklane SuperSpar, in association with the City of Pietermaritzburg, CPW Printers, The Witness and Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa.

Tickets for the concert are available online at www.ticketpro.co.za only.
