Cape Town Youth Choir heading for Carnegie Hall
04.03.2017 The Cape Town Youth Choir is set to perform in the Zankel Hall of New York’s famous Carnegie Hall on 3 April 2017.
The 599-seat Zankel Hall, Carnegie Hall’s newest venue, opened in 2003 and has become one of the hottest places in New York City to see chamber music, recitals, and the latest contemporary sounds from classical, pop, jazz, and world music artists.
Founded in 1997, the Cape Town Youth Choir is made up of singers aged 15 to 30 and is conducted by Leon Starker. Their programme for this momentous event is called ‘Songs of Loss and Hope’ and features works by Southern African composers. It includes four works by young South Africans composed specifically for the choir’s United States tour.
Works by Hendrik Hofmeyr, Péter Louis Van Dijk, Neo Muyanga, Conrad Asman, Simon Bethell, Tanyaradzwa Tawengwa, Jaakko Mäntyjärvi, Tord Kalvenes, Grete Pedersen, Václav, and traditional South African selections can be heard.
