Grace Notes: Sacred music from Africa and Europe

Cape Town Opera kicks off the year with a one-night-only performance of Grace Notes at St George’s Cathedral on January 27, 2022 at 7pm. This performance will be dedicated to the irreplaceable Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his beautiful legacy of faith, hope and love.

Following its acclaimed 2016 premiere in France, sold-out Cape Town performances in 2018 and successful 2019 European tour to Austria, Hungary, Luxembourg and Germany, Cape Town Opera is delighted to bring back this unique concert of a cappella sacred music.

Juxtaposing ancient and modern music from Europe and Africa, Grace Notes intersperses sacred compositions by Byrd, Palestrina, Duruflé and Pärt with religious music drawn from Xhosa, Venda, Zulu and Swahili traditions. A moving reflection on the yearning to express spirituality through music, Grace Notes uncovers lines of connection across continents and centuries.

The powerful voices of the Cape Town Opera Chorus shine in Grace Notes, curated by Thuthuka Sibisi with Marvin Kernelle as Chorus Master and Conductor.

Note: all ticket holders of the postponed December 2021 performances will be automatically moved to this new performance date.
