George Herald - - Arts & Entertainment - Michelle Pie­naar

Hours of practi­ce and hard work paid off w­hen the or­ches­tra and choir of Car­pe Mu­si­cam! at­trac­ted a full hou­se for their per­for­man­ce Last Nig­ht of the Proms.

The au­dien­ce had the op­por­tu­ni­ty to en­joy a lo­ve­ly pro­gram­me of clas­si­cal mu­sic last Sa­tur­day at the Ou­te­ni­qua Trans­port Mu­seum. Their re­per­toi­re in­clu­ded The Ho­ly Ci­ty by S­te­phen Foster,

Je­ru­sa­lem by Sir Hu­bert Par­ry and Blue Moon by Rod­gers & Hart. Mar­le­ne Tag­li­a­vi­ni, Ro­nell Kru­ger, or­ches­tra le­a­der Nor­man Car­less and Han­nes Wan­nen­burg per­for­med as so­loi­sts du­ring the cour­se of the e­ve­ning.

"The e­ve­ning ex­cee­ded my wil­dest ex­pec­ta­ti­ons in terms of per­for­man­ce, qua­li­ty and au­dien­ce par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on," said Car­less. "The po­si­ti­ve feed­back con­ti­nues to be ab­so­lu­te­ly o­ver­w­hel­ming."
