Kingwood College hosted the “Big Hymn Sing” this past Sunday as part of their 125th celebrations. The event was held in the Cathedral and choirs from all over Grahamstown/Makhanda were invited to join in the celebrations. It was a joyous celebration of singing together and showed that choral music is thriving in this city and our schools.
The Chamber Choir performed at their peak singing a complex arrangement of the spiritual “Wade in the water”. This piece was commissioned for the Pretoria University Choir in 2017 and the Chamber choir is only the second choir to have performed this piece since.
The choir’s high level of energy exuded throughout the cathedral as was evident in the rousing applause that followed. The choir can be secure in the fact that they have done their school proud and I would like to thank them all for their hard work and unwavering dedication.
