A UNIQUE opportunity awaits local choral enthusiasts who are being invited to join the ranks of the Last Night of the Proms choir for its performance in Pietermaritzburg on Saturday, October 10.
South African music legend, Richard Cock, will be in the city to work with the choir for the final rehearsals leading up to the concert.

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Proms in KwaZulu-Natal, Cock will be once again conducting the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra in the Pietermaritzburg City Hall.

Choral singers interested in joining the choir will need to be able to sing standard Proms numbers Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia, as well as the Slaves Chorus, Finlandia and O Fortuna from Carmina Burana.

With the Pietermaritzburg Amateur Music Society (PAMS) Choir at the core of the choral forces, those interested should join the rehearsals on Tuesdays, from September 29 to October 6, from 6 pm to 7 pm at the NG Kerk in Beverley Road (opposite the Botanic Gardens) and then Richard Cock’s rehearsals on Thursday, October 8 and Friday, October 9 at 7 pm at the Tatham Art Gallery in preparation for the concert on Saturday, October 10 in the City Hall.
