Bongani Magatyana Community Weekend Workshop with South African choirleader & composer (Oct 27-29)

Echo is sponsoring a very special workshop this Fall, and we wanted to give you the first opportunity to register, before we open enrollment to the public. [Public registration will begin this coming Monday (Aug 28).]

Renowned choirleader and composer Bongani Magatyana is coming to Canada in October, and the Echo Choir has grabbed the opportunity to offer a special public workshop with him, open to adults and teens of all voices and genders.

Mr Magatyana is a regular teacher with Village Harmony in the US. He leads choirs at home in Cape Town, and his beautiful and intricate choral pieces have been commissioned and sung by groups around the world, including Harvard University’s choirs.This workshop will feature songs in English and Xhosa, with beautiful harmonies in South African traditions.

The event will take place at our regular rehearsal space, the Church of the Holy Trinity (behind the Eaton Centre), Fri Oct 27 to Sun Oct 29. Holy Trinity is a fully accessible space, with accessible washrooms.

Specific times are 7PM-9PM on Friday Oct 27, 10AM-4PM on Sat Oct 28, and 1PM-4PM on Sun Oct 29. Cost is $100 per person. Tea/coffee will be provided on Saturday and Sunday. (Note that meals are otherwise not provided, nor is accommodation.)
