CELEBRATING FIVE YEARS OF VOX
VOX Cape Town was founded five years ago to create mesmerising, imaginative choral experiences to enrich the musical life of the Mother City.
Since then, we have presented scores of immersive performances in venues ranging from the intimacy of the UCT Irma Stern Museum and the Tasting Cellar at Groot Constantia to the breathtaking grandeur of the Norval Foundation and St George’s Cathedral. Our flagship performances have spanned millennia, juxtaposed the classical and the contemporary, and even taken us on a voyage to the mystical Northern Lights.
This month, as VOX Cape Town celebrates its fifth anniversary, we acknowledge the invaluable contributions of our singers, our musical colleagues, our generous donors, and our supporters. Although we are staying distant, there are still ways in which we can celebrate this milestone together as a musical community:
- Our first “gift” to you this month is a series of previously-unreleased live recordings from the Norval Foundation.
- Next, look out for our third Virtual VOX project later in July.
- Finally, we invite you to a special broadcast on Fine Music Radio from 8-10 pm (South African Standard Time) on Friday 31 July. Our creative leadership will reflect on some of the highlights and accomplishments of the past five years together with you, our musical family.
Fine Music Radio broadcasts on 101.3 FM in Cape Town, 107.9 FM in Fish Hoek and Noordhoek, 94.7 FM in Hout Bay and Llandudno, 97.1 FM on the Atlantic Seaboard, DStv Audio Channel 838 and worldwide on www.fmr.co.za.
What is your most special memory of VOX? Which of our performances do you remember most fondly? Send us a birthday message and we’ll post it on our website to share with the rest of our musical family.
Our special birthday logo was designed by one of our long-standing singers, Elinor Driver. It represents some of our major musical projects from the past five years. Take a close look and see how many you are able to identify!
