Intermezzo Chamber Choir Spring Concert

Sat 13 May 19:30 - 21:30

Andrew Ker, conductor

Intermezzo’s spring concert features music with an African connection, including works by classical African composers, an exquisite new setting of a traditional African song, South African popular music from the 1960s adapted for chamber choir, and a 1980s anti-apartheid song in a dramatic new arrangement.
The pieces share themes of joyfulness and integration: black with white, indigenous African with classical style, and choir with marimba! We also include an English composer setting a Caribbean poem about African rituals, and modern versions of African-American spirituals.
These beautiful pieces include Xhosa traditional ‘Indodana’, Klatzow’s ‘Prayers & Dances of Praise’, movements from Chilcott’s ‘The Making of the Drum’, Tin’s ‘Baba Yetu’ plus works by Heymann, Paulsson, Makeba and others.
Some of the pieces have been given to us directly by the composers, so this is a concert programme that you won’t hear anywhere else!
