VOX AT THE GROOTE KERK
FREEDOM DAY CONCERT WEDDING CEREMONY
On Friday 27 April 2018 (Freedom Day), VOX was invited to participate in the Freedom Day Concert Wedding Ceremony of Elizabeth Catharina du Toit and Nicholas Hilarides in the Groote Kerk, Cape Town.
This wonderful celebration of marriage (and music!) featured works by Handel, Parry, Franck, Mendelssohn, JS Bach, Walford Davies, Schubert, Mozart and Saint-Saëns. What a treat to join forces with the Cape Town Pops Orchestra, the Cape Town Hunting Horns, The Philharmonia Choir of Cape Town, the Groote Kerk Koor, the St Cyprian’s Chamber Choir and a number of fine vocal soloists including George Stevens and the bride herself. Congratulations!
