CAROL FESTIVAL (article first published : 2002-11-17)

The popular Festival of Carols will take place from December 4 to 8 at the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir School campus in Champagne Valley, Central Drakensberg. The natural surroundings, the majestic mountains and a world-class auditorium are the setting for this unique and exciting festival.

The Festival is hosted by the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir with guest artists Cutt Glas, Randall Wicomb, Rina Hugo, Manuel Escorcio, Carel Trichardt, Petru Wessels, Marinda Snyman, Le Group, Karen Meiring and Jannie Moolman.

Now in its third year, the Festival of Carols offers an extravaganza of Christmas music accompanied by a gift market and food stalls. A potpourri of favourites performed by the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir is to be expected, like Once in Royal David’s City, Three Kings of Orient, and JS Bach’s Jauchzet, frohlocket from the Christmas Oratorio.

The Festival has grown rapidly since its first year and has become a very popular event, attracting locals as well as international visitors. A highlight of this year’s event will be the premier of the Boys’ Choir’s latest CD recording, containing contemporary hits.

An outside stage featuring a variety of fringe artists will be introduced at this year’s Festival. Visual arts and crafts will be also be a prominent feature.
