YOUNG VOICES IN HEAVENLY HARMONY (article first published : 2005-05-6)

The Northern KwaZulu-Natal Youth Choir visits Durban on a short tour this month and will collaborate in a joint concert with the University of KwaZulu-Natal Opera Ensemble.

Young Voices in Heavenly Harmony will be presented at the UKZN Jubilee Centre auditorium on May 14 at19h30.

The NKZN Youth Choir was formed in 1992 as an off-shoot of the province's central Youth Choir. It has undertaken tours in South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe, and competed abroad, having the honour of performing before the late Pope John Paul II in a mass at St Peter's in Rome. The choir has already released two compact-disc recordings of its work.

Under the direction of William Silk, a recent graduate of UKZN, the choir will perform a variety of attractive numbers, both sacred and secular, from its extensive repertoire.

Under its chorus-master Andrew Warburton, The UKZN Opera Ensemble brings its own brand of singing to the event. Durban audiences familiar with the work of the Opera Studio and Choral Academy (OSCA) at the University can expect superb music from the lyric repertoire. Most of the numbers feature solo voices backed by a chorus, in music from operas (and operettas) by Donizetti, Lalo, Mascagni, Kalman and Johann Strauss II.

To bring this joyful event to a close, the two ensembles will combine in a number of songs, including two from Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals.

Tickets R20 (R10 concessions) available at the door or reserved in advance by phoning Maggie Reddy on 031 260 1672.

There is secure parking behind the Jubilee Centre in the student parking area off Princess Alice Avenue (look for the overhead pedestrian bridge).
