Too often we look to the world when we have talent right infront of us, today I attended the Western Cape Junior/Youth Choir Music Festival presented by the Moravian Choir Union of South Africa (MOCUSA) at the City Hall in Cape Town. Occasions like these make me truly proud to be a Moravian with it abundance of talent.
17 different youth choirs from as far as Elim, Genadendal, Goedverwacht and Pella came together as a Mass Choir and blessed us with their mesmerizing voices, yes they sang like angels and looked so bright and beautiful – clearly enjoying every minute.
The afternoon included various song performances by the Mass Choir led by enthusiastic conductors as well as some Violin, Organ solo performances and a Recorder and Brass ensemble. Now that I look back we were really spoilt for choice but hey we Moravians love our music and I could see this by how well organised the afternoon was. Another indication of our love for music was when the Recorder Ensemble played one of the hymns O, had ek duisend tonge, I saw some people humming to the tune wanting to sing along, wys jou net ons Moraviers ken ons gesange.
The African Traditional songs were beautifully rendered including the actions, again I some audience members wanting to join in the fun on stage. This was a definite highlight for me.
These kids are really our Future Leaders, World Icons….even though the seasons change we need to keep the FAITH alive and let….
THESE ANGELS SING!
