Get into the festive spirit with Christmas Carols at Groot Constantia

The Symphony Choir of Cape Town has joined forces with CBM South Africa to present a festive concert with a cause – benefiting children affected by poverty at the Alta du Toit School in Kuils River who are on the Peninsula School Feeding Association’s (PSFA) feeding programme. 

CBM SA is the South African member organisation of a Christian international development movement, committed to improving the quality of life of people with disabilities in the poorest communities of the world irrespective of race, gender or religious belief. 

Based on its core values and more than 100 years of professional expertise, CBM SA addresses poverty both as a cause and as a consequence of disability; and works in partnership with local and national civil society organisations to create an inclusive society for all.

It is fast becoming a tradition that CBM South Africa hosts an annual fundraising event with a talented South African choir and 2019 is no different! 

Joining forces with Peninsula School Feeding Association (PSFA) to provide meals for the children of the Alta du Toit School in 2020, and utilising the celebrated talent of the Symphony Choir of Cape Town, this feel-good festive concert promises to get people up on their feet and into the holiday spirit.

PSFA is a 61 year-old registered non-profit organisation that addresses hunger in young learners and students attending primary, secondary and special needs schools as well as Orphaned and Vulnerable Children Centres, Early Childhood Development Centres and Technical and Vocational Education and Training Colleges in the Western Province.

Robert Donnelly, CEO of CBM SA explains: “We really wanted to continue our tradition of partnering with a choir to raise funds for the projects we support and were delighted when the Symphony Choir of Cape Town agreed to assist us. It promises to be a magical evening and our team is looking immensely forward to it.”

Don’t forget to bring a warm rug, low chairs, a picnic basket and a torch or a lantern as we light up the rolling lawns of Groot Constantia with festive favourites, guaranteed to appeal to young and old!  Groot Constantia wines, I Love Coffee : SA’s Deaf run coffee popup, and the best brownies in South Africa baked by Brownies&downieS will all be available for sale on the night.

Alexander Fokkens will be conducting this family favourite with the lineup including carols and other festive music sung by members of the acclaimed Symphony Choir of Cape Town with a couple of guest performances included for added festivity.

Gates open at 5pm and everyone on arrival will be welcomed to a live performance by the highly acclaimed Imbhewu Marimba Band from the Alta du Toit School.
