Let Music Be the Food of Love

On Sunday, 23 June, the Durban Chamber Choir will present a programme of choral music, interspersed with three organ pieces, which reflect on our love of music, to be performed at St Thomas Church, Musgrave on Sunday 23 June at 3pm.


After several months of rehearsal, the Durban Chamber Choir is ready to present their new programme. 

Music certainly can be the food of love. Much of the history of western music revolves around themes of love.

The concert’s title work, opens the programme, followed by an arrangement (in 16th century European madrigal style) of the Beatles’ iconic song “Money Can’t Buy Me Love”. From romantic love, the texts turn to religious devotion, reflecting musically on the Psalms, a prayer to Mary (from Rachmaninov’s Vespers), and a metaphorical medieval text “Jesus Christ the Apple Tree”.

The choir’s conductor is Andrew-John Bethke. Before coming to Durban to take up an academic position at UKZN, he was director of music at Grahamstown Anglican Cathedral and conductor of the Rhodes University Chamber Choir (RUCC).

Come and join us to celebrate choral music in an eclectic programme which will delight your heart.

Tickets will be available at the door for R100, concessions R70.
