Two students from the Department of Engineering & the Built Environment (EBE) were part of a recent US tour by the Cape Town Youth Choir, whose performance at Carnegie Hall on 3 April received two standing ovations.

Soprano Hlumelo Marepula (civil engineering) and bass singer Jabulani Nyathi (chemical engineering), along with Finn Lewis, daughter of EBE dean Alison Lewis, were part of the 32-strong choir that shared their repertoire Songs of Loss and Hope with audiences in New York and Boston.

Their performances included items such as Ladysmith Black Mambazo’s “Homeless” and renditions of traditional songs and hymns such as “Indodana” and “Ukuthula”. All were sung in the original languages.

The choir will present their Carnegie Hall Concert repertoire at the Hugo Lambrechts Auditorium on Saturday, 22 April, at 19:00 and at Bishops Memorial Chapel on Sunday, 23 April, at 16:00.

Book your tickets for the Saturday concert and the Sunday concert.
