The Rand Symphony Orchestra and Jeppe High School for Girls present Sir Karl Jenkins’ fabulous ‘Stabat Mater’ in a choral spectacular that is not to be missed!
On Sunday 29 October 2023, at 15:30 at the Linder Auditorium, the Rand Symphony Orchestra will join the Drakensberg Old Boys’ Choir and Voces Libres Chamber Choir in support of the Jeppe High School for Girls’ Choir, Orchestra and Music Staff. Carel Henn, the conductor of the Rand Symphony Orchestra takes the reins in this mass orchestra and choir production and Megan Napier as the vocal soloist.
Stabat Mater is a 2008 composition for choir and orchestra by Karl Jenkins, based on the 13th-century prayer Stabat Mater. Like much of Jenkins’ earlier work, the work incorporates both traditional Western music (orchestra and choir) with ethnic instruments and vocals, this time focusing on the Middle East.
The concert will open with Elgar’s well-loved Nimrod from the Enigma Variations conducted by guest conductor Andrew Pallet from Jeppe Girls’ High School.
Tickets are available from Quicket or at the venue (on the day).
