VOX Cape Town’s series of immersive performances, entitled “New Soundscapes”, are designed to expose Cape Town’s audiences to fresh choral sounds. The first of these concerts featured music by two composers sharing the same name – John Tave(r)ner – while the second, “Trust the Silences”, and its sequel, “Trust the Silences (Once More)”, comprised choral music written within the last three decades. “Northern Lights: A Baltic Voyage” took listeners on a musical journey of light and sound in presentation of contemporary composers from Northern and Eastern Europe.
