SuitCase – the 12 cellos of the Paz Consort with CH2

This is something new!  Composer Keith Moss is arranging well loved songs and melodies from all over for 12 cellos and non other than CH2 Guitar duo.  Keith met these crazy cross-over flamenco/classical/rock/whatever you can think of after they performed with the University Orchestra of Pretoria.  This collaboration is going to present an awesome concert, and something wholly different than what Paz Consort has been up to for the past 4 years.  Don’t miss and book your tickets early at www.itickets.co.za

Rehearsals underway for “Pendulum”

The Paz Consort will kick off 2013 with a new concert for voice, harp and clarinet in Nazareth House Chapel.  Performed by Kim Witbooi (voice), Gaylen Sales (harp) and Morné van Heerden (clarinet), the concert will feature new works by Pieter Bezuidenhout,Franco Prinsloo, and Keith Moss.  Rehearsals are in full swing.  The challenges arising from writing for the Harp have been educational and Gaylen has helped all the composers realise their vision by giving us a lot of coaching.  Looking forward to the first Paz Consort concert in Pretoria
