VOX POPS

“VOX POPS” /vɒksˈpɒps/ Noun. Etymology: Abbreviation from Latin “vox populi”.
Meaning: A short, informal interview with members of the public, especially to canvas opinion.

We have received an excellent response to our online survey. In addition to the number of votes each piece received, we also took into account their individual characters as we fashioned a varied and balanced musical programme for the performance. Besides a host of early polyphonic music (Victoria, Palestrina, Tallis), motets from the Classical and Romantic eras (Mozart, Bruckner, Parry) and local compositions from closer to home (van Dijk, Prinsloo), special requests for music by Hildegard von Bingen, Eric Whitacre and a well-known folk song from the United States will also be honoured.

VENUE: St Andrew’s Church, Kildare Road, Newlands

BACKGROUND TO “VOX POPS”

Our innovative performances wouldn’t happen without YOU – our listeners, audience members, supporters and critics. So, for our next concert, we invite you to tell us which choral music you would most like to hear. Do you have a favourite piece of music from one of our past performances, or is there a work that you would especially like us to sing? VOTE for your favourite choral music (http://bit.ly/2o7AMlA) and we’ll perform your most popular choices at St Andrew’s Church in Newlands on Friday 20 April. Proceeds from this event will be donated to the church’s building project, Laying the Foundation.
