VOX Cape Town is an innovative choral collective that focuses on a cappella works, oratorios and local compositions. Their intention is to invigorate local choral music through imaginative programming and staging to create intimate, immersive and multisensory experiences. It is in pursuit of this invigoration that VOX is performing in a series of concerts, often in unconventional spaces.
VOX’s ‘New Soundscapes’ performances feature a variety of early and contemporary choral music. At the Norval concert they perform rarely-performed choral music by contemporary minimalist composers such as Henryk Górecki, Arvo Pärt and Philip Glass. Glass’s settings of poems written by Leonard Cohen and Octavio Paz will also be interspersed with his piano music played by Clinton Claasen, including extracts from the award-winning film score for “The Hours”.
Guests have the option of eating dinner before the show at The Skotnes Restaurant.
