WHAT’S ON IN CAPE TOWN
 

There is so much going on around Cape Town it would be impossible to see it all, taste it all, visit it all, experience it all. Our Activity Groups cover a fair amount of ground but there is still so much happening in and around Cape Town that we couldn’t possibly get to with formal group bookings.

This section will share with you some of the events and happenings in and around Cape Town that might appeal to you. If you like the sound of an event, grab a friend at the club or better still, invite somebody you only just met. The IWC is first and foremost a friendship club – so get out there and make friends!

Know of something you would like to share or an event you think other members of IWC would like? Please send details to Wendy on wkcoetzee@gmail.com. We would love to hear from you!

 
 

Handel's Messiah

 
Tickets at www.quicket.co.za  - Cost: R145-R160
 
Handel’s Messiah is very likely the most performed oratorio in the history of sacred music. Messiah is described as “a masterpiece with drama to spare in every page of its score” that “feels as fresh today as it did when first premiered in Dublin in 1742”.
 
Join the Cape Town Youth Choir and Junges Vokalensemble Hannover in a performance where Handel’s “musical fireworks” is matched by the youthful sound and energy of the two youth choirs.
 
South African tenor Levy Sekgapane, first prize winner of Placido Domingo’s prestigious Operalia 2017 competition makes his “Messiah debut” in the role of the evangelist. Since winning the Belvedere Singing Competition in 2015, Sekgapane has rapidly become one of the world’s most sought-after young Rossini tenors, triumphing in major opera houses including Munich, Copenhagen and Rome. Completing a stellar line-up of soloists are well-known soprano Magdalene Minnaar, Minette du Toit Pearce (mezzo) and bass Bongani Khubheka.
 
The CTYC Festival orchestra is led by Suzanne Martens (first violin) with Erik Dippenaar on the harpsichord.
