Founded in 2009 with a special focus on collaboration and service, Classical Movements‘ Ihlombe! South African Choral Festival features a true diversity of ensembles exchanging cultures through shared workshops, side-by-side rehearsals and outreach projects throughout the Rainbow Nation—all while performing for enthusiastic crowds in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Soweto and numerous communities across South Africa.
Hailed as “the largest international choral gathering in South Africa” by the Cape Times, over the past decade, Ihlombe! has highlighted nearly 90 choirs from some 10 countries.
Inspired by the Kalahari Bushmen, one of the oldest continuous cultures on Earth, Classical Movements’ 12th Ihlombe! South African Choral Festival will celebrate in song the traditions of humankind throughout the ages. Learning from the past, while joyously looking toward our future together, Ihlombe! 2022 invites vocal ensembles of all kinds, the world over to journey along with us—sharing your rhythms, languages, and passions.
