(The Durban Chamber Choir)

Concert goers can enjoy a beguiling selection of music of the night when the Durban Chamber Choir (DCC) presents Nocturne - its latest bouquet of choral classics - in Pietermaritzburg and Durban. The programme features a wide-ranging repertoire conducted by Dr Christopher Cockburn, the Choir’s Director.

The programme will include music by among others, the great German Romantic, Johannes Brahms (1833 – 1897), the iconic British composer, Sir Edward Elgar (1857 – 1934), and the contemporary Estonian master, Arvo Pärt (born 1935), who since 2010 has been the most performed living composer in the world.

DCC can be heard performing Nocturne at the Lutheran Church in Hayfields, Pietermaritzburg, on October 28. The programme will reprised at St Thomas’s Anglican Church, Musgrave, on November 4.

Both performances start at 15h00 and last about an hour. Refreshments will be served after the concerts.

Tickets R70 (R40 student/scholar OAP concessions) available at the door from 14h00, and admission to the venues is from 14h30. School groups are admitted free, and group bookings may be made, by prior arrangement. Contact
