VOX Cape Town 2017/01 - Trust the Silences (Once More)
View this email in your browser
Experience VOX on Friday 21 April 2017
VOX Cape Town is thrilled to announce that, due to an overwhelmingly positive response, its first major performance of 2017 will be a re-imagining of the contemporary choral extravaganza that took place in November last year. This unique celebration of contrasts will again take place in the glorious acoustic of the Memorial Chapel, Bishops.
While still headed by the unleashed kinetic energy of “Cloudburst”, the programme will feature brand new pieces by Eric Whitacre, Ēriks Ešenvalds, Radiohead and The Cinematic Orchestra. These works, ranging from the sublime to the intimate, will offset the devastation of the minimalist masterpiece at the centre of the performance, “When David Heard”.
We are excited to feature again the unique vocal talents of Richard Brokensha (ISO) alongside those of our singers. All proceeds from this performance will be donated to the Bishops Chapel Improvement Fund to maintain this beloved acoustic jewel for future musical events.

Don’t miss this final opportunity to experience VOX’s most ambitious, immersive choral project yet. Email us at to reserve your spot. Booking is essential. Tickets are R160 or R120 for seniors and students, payable at the door.
