Hugo Lambrechts Music Centre, in Parow, will host its annual Christmas concert tomorrow, Thursday November 30 at the Hugo Lambrechts Auditorium, at 6pm.
Guest artists, Pavel Petrenko, a conductor, and Anna Markarova, a soprano, from Russia, will join the Hugo Lambrechts Symphony Orchestra in performing a festive programme of orchestral works and arias.
Ethan Lawson, a Hugo Lambrechts pupil, will feature as a soloist in JC Bach’s Cello Concerto in C Minor.
The rest of the participants include several orchestras and ensembles from Hugo Lambrechts: string orchestras, a wind band, a harp choir, and a unique ensemble consisting of 15 guitars and eight singers. There also be a mass item, which will bring together nearly 200 performers on stage.
The varied programme will include arrangements of popular and not such well-known Christmas carols, among which there will be a brand-new composition for a string orchestra, Mzanzi Christmas, by the local composer Anthony Costandius.
The proceeds of the concert will be donated to the TygerBear Foundation for traumatised children and families. A donations box for goods and gifts for the children will also be available at Hugo Lambrechts Music Centre a week before the concert.
