CAPE TOWN YOUTH CHOIR

R140

Founded in 1997 under the name Pro Cantu, the Cape Town Youth Choir aims to provide an opportunity for young South Africans to sing in a choir of the highest international standards while delivering a moving musical experience to its audiences. CTYC loves tackling challenging repertoire and singing major choral works. In addition to their regular a cappella programmes they have in recent years performed Arvo Pärt’s St John Passion, Rachmaninov’s All-Night Vigil (once in Afrikaans and a few years later in Church Slavonic) as well as Händel’s Messiah (in 2015 and in 2018). In April 2017 CTYC made their debut on the Carnegie Hall stage in New York with a full a Cappella concert during a tour of the US
