2017 Concert Schedule

 Sunday April 9th 2017

We will be singing Stainer’s Crucifixion at St George’s Cathedral as part of the evening Palm Sunday service. We will be joined by the St George’s Cathedral Chamber Choir and will be conducted by our Assistant Music Director, Levi Alexander with Grant Brasler on the organ.

As this performance will form part of the service, there will be no ticket cost for the congregation. However there will be a collection taken towards the end of the service.

The time of the service is still to be confirmed but it will probably be in the early evening. Further details will appear on our website www.scct.co.za nearer the time.

Saturday and Sunday 22nd and 23rd April 2017

We will, once again, be taking part in the annual Wynberg Rotary Last Night of the Proms at Cape Town City Hall, under the baton of Richard Cock. These concerts are always “sell out” events and we urge you to book tickets through Computicket as soon as bookings open.

early June 2017

We will be performing Haydn’s Creation in collaboration with the City of Tygerberg Choir.  The date and venues for this concert will be confirmed shortly and the details will appear on our website.

Previous year’s concerts

HANDEL’S MESSIAH on Friday December 23rd 2016 at St Martini Lutheran Church in Long Street was the perfect way to end our choral year and to celebrate the Festive Season.

 The wonderful soloists for this concert were Magdalene Minnaar, Monika Voysey, Given Nkosi and Thato Machona and the conductor was Alexander Fokkens.

Festive Concert 2016

This was held at Groot Constantia Wine Estate on December 7th 2016. We were fortunate to have a perfect, windless evening and the audience thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to relax, picnic and enjoy the festive music in this amazing setting.
