To mark five years of imaginative, immersive choral experiences in July 2020 (while staying physically distant), VOX Cape Town invited its musical family to tune in to a special evening broadcast on Fine Music Radio.

Listeners were encouraged to imagine themselves in the concert hall, art gallery or wine cellar as musical highlights from the past five years, as well as reflections from special colleagues, were accompanied by a selection of memorable recordings.
