I remarked to a close friend recently about how angry i’d get if local stores played BoneyM christmas music on repeat again like they did last year. Luckily none of that will be heard this weekend when i go to watch the awesome Kampala singers perform.
And best of luck to the particularly talented Mirembe and Edith who were nice enough to send me this introduction to their crew.
Kampala Singers’ Christmas SeasonBy Susan KimbowaThe Kampala Singers, a group of professional and amateur singers, has been performing since the 1950’s and has introduced many residents of Kampala to the world of classical music.For the last few years, they have had two major season performances in the year; Easter and Christmas, where they have hosted classical music enthusiasts for an evening of great performances.The choir dedicates a great amount of time to be able to deliver breathtaking performances.They usually take off two months to prepare for one hour of music, even with amateur musicians, the dedication is clear in the performance.Easter season this year brought us a performance of Mozart’s Missa Brevis in B flat, with a couple of well delivered negro spirituals, that had the audience begging for an encore.For the Christmas season, the Kampala Singers accompanied by Kampala Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Fred Kiggundu Musoke, will perform Mendelsohn’s hymn of praise and other season hymns to usher in the Christmas season.The performance will be held at the St. Paul’s Cathedral, Namirembe an old church with the perfect atmosphere and acoustics for a live presentation. The shows are scheduled for 7pm on Saturday 30th November and 5:30pm on Sunday 1st December 2013See you there! . Entrance is free, grab a couple of fellow enthusiast
