MI(SA)’ At the Suidoosterfees Cape Town 24 April – 1 May 2019 Cape Town

MI(SA) is a three-part performance consisting of the Missa Luba, (Ramirez) the Misa Criolla (Haazen)and a new South African mass written by Antjie Krog with music by Antoni Schonken: Die nuwe verbond – ‘n Misorde vir die universum. Marthinus Basson combines rites and liturgies to create a ground-breaking unique South African soundscape, primarily in Afrikaans but also in Latin, Greek, English, Xhosa and old Khoi-san. Krog states that it is a “mass to assuage the harm that people inflict upon each other and the planet”. The MI(SA) is not simply sung by the Cape Town Opera Choir – their individual stories, and where they come from, form part of the mass.

Director: Marthinus Basson Conductor: Pieter Bezuidenhout

Who can apply:

All flutists/flautists that are playing at a solid grade 5-6 level and above. We are hoping to accommodate as many as possible, however, high school and university students will be given preference over working professionals and more advanced students will be given preference over less advanced students. Teachers of students may be contacted in order to help gauge the level. Remember there will be other classes in the future and students who do not get a chance to perform in these classes may get a chance in future.

How much do the classes cost?

To participate actively in the classes the cost will be R400 per student. This will include the possibility of attending the rest of the week’s classes passively.
