NATIONAL ISICATHAMIYA COMPETITION (article first published : 2000-10-21)

Choirs from around the country are putting the finishing touches to their performances in preparation for the National Isicathamiya Competition to be held at the Playhouse Opera Theatre on November 4. This is the fourth annual competition to be staged at the Playhouse and this year’s event will feature choirs from as far afield as Gauteng and Swaziland. The 1999 event was a sell-out and this year’s competition expects to be even bigger and better.

This all-night feast of choral music will feature 50 choirs competing in the Top 20 Section and Section One, with a further 50 choirs appearing in the Open Section. Other items to look forward to during the night include the best dressed competitions (male and female, Western and traditional dress), and performances by the winners of last years competition - Xolo Home Boys and Relation Brothers.

The competition starts at 19h00 and is expected to finish at 07h00 the next morning. Tickets R15 from TicketWeb with credit card bookings on (031) 369-9444. A limited number of tickets will be on sale at the Playhouse on the night but pre-booking is advised to avoid disappointment, as tickets for last years show sold out within 20 minutes of the box office opening.

The National Isicathamiya Competition forms part of the Playhouse Company’s Festive Season Theatre package and is supported by Ukhozi FM and SATMA. More details from Thandekile Nhlanhla on (031) 369-9456.
