Maritzburg's top choral group is back, fresh from a successful concert in aid of the SPCA, which received a standing ovation. With a selection of songs which will delight and entertain, Maritzburg Singers, under the baton of Helen Vermaak, are bringing their special brand of choral magic to the intimacy of the Hexagon Dive in a show titled In Other Words …

This year's programme includes four sections: The Movies, The Musicals, Spirituals and The Seventies. From the swinging Fly Me to the Moon, through a beautiful Rodgers and Hammerstein medley, and a rousing arrangement of Down by the Riverside, to Abba and Simon and Garfunkel. Other numbers include Wind Beneath My Wings, Oh Holy Night and You Raise Me Up.

For lovers of good music in general and choral music in particular, this evening promises to be a highlight of the season as it joyfully ushers in the approaching festive season.

In Other Words … Maritzburg Singers Live at the Dive! has a performance in the Hexagon Dive at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Pietermaritzburg on November 2 at 19h00 for 19h30 (doors open at 18h45). This is a picnic evening so patrons are invited to bring their food, but no drinks, as there is a cash bar.
