Biografie

Die Oos-Kaapse Kinderkoor, gesetel in Port Elizabeth, Suid-Afrika

Welkom aan alle studente van die Afrikaanse taal! Kom lees gerus in Afrikaans meer oor ons koor:

Die Oos-Kaapse Kinderkoor (OKKK) is in 1982 gestig en staan sedert 1986 onder die bekwame leiding van Lionel van Zyl, tans senior lektor in sang aan die Nelson Mandela Metropolitaanse Universiteit in Port Elizabeth.

Musikaal begaafde seuns en dogters tussen die ouderdomme van 10 en 15 jaar moet ‘n oudisie slaag om ‘n lid van die koor te word. Kinders word slegs op grond van musikaliteit en sangtalent gekies. Alle kultuurgroepe is welkom.

Die koor is bekend vir sy kinderstemme se suiwer sang. Oorspronklike werke wat spesifiek vir Kinderkoor (gelyke stemme) geskryf is, word by voorkeur uitgevoer. Daar word in verskeie tale soos Afrikaans, Engels, Duits, Latyn, Frans, Tsjeggies en inheemse tale, soos bv. Xhosa, gesing.

Die OKKK word dikwels genooi om op te tree, o.a. by skole, tydens kerkdienste, funksies in die Veremarksaal in Port Elizabeth en konserte saam met die plaaslike Oos-Kaapse Filharmoniese orkes.

Buitelandse konserttoere word al om die ander jaar onderneem. Omdat die toere op uitnodiging van oorsese kore geskied, word ons koorlede by gesinne van die hierdie koorlede gehuisves. Dit bied aan Suid-Afrikaanse kinders die geleentheid om ander kulture se leefwyses te sien en ervaar. Hulle leer ook om selfstandig op te tree en om oor taalgrense heen te kommunikeer.

Toer 2008: Vanjaar vertrek die koor op 14 September, op uitnodiging van kore in Duitsland, Finland en Estland, op hulle 9de internasionale konserttoer. Die OKKK het al saam met vele internasionaal bekende Kinderkore, o.a. die Weense Seunskoor, opgetree.

Ontwikkelingsprogram: Sedert 2004 word ‘n ontwikkelingsprogram bedryf. Dit beteken dat begaafde kinders, wat normaalweg nie sou kon beskostig om in die koor te sing nie, die geleentheid gebied word om aan te sluit. Danksy al die geleenthede wat die koor bied, kry hierdie kinders kans om saam met hul eweknieë, uit alle ekonomiese groepe en agtergronde te ontwikkel. Die afgelope twee jaar kon daar ongelukkig geen borgskap vir die ontwikkelingsprogram bekom word nie wat ‘n geweldige finansiële las op die koor geplaas het.Ten spyte daarvan het 25 kinders reeds in die eerste drie jaar aan die program deelgeneem en is ‘n verdere 12 geïdentifiseer vir 2008. Ons sal egter graag hierdie program veel groter wil uitbou.

Uitnodiging aan almal wat hier lees:
1. Kom groet gerus by ons konserte tydens ons toer in Duitsland, Finland en Estland! Tydens vorige toere het koerantartikels slegs lof gehad vir ons koor! 2. Kom luister na ons in Port Elizabeth!

Biography

The Eastern Cape Children’s Choir, based in Port Elizabeth, South Africa

The Eastern Cape Children’s Choir (ECCC) was founded in 1982 and has been under the expert leadership of Lionel van Zyl, senior lecturer in voice at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth, since 1986.

Musically gifted children (boys and girls) between the ages of 10 and 15 years enter the choir following a successful audition. Children are selected based only on musicality and singing talent. All cultural groups are welcome.

The choir is famous for the pure sound of its children’s voices. Choral works written specifically for children’s choir (equal voices) are preferred. The choir sings in many languages, e.g. Afrikaans, English, German, Latin, French, Czech and African languages e.g. Xhosa.

The ECCC is often invited to perform, amongst others at schools, during church services, functions in the Feathermarket Hall in Port Elizabeth and at concerts with the local Eastern Cape Philharmonic Orchestra.

International concert tours are undertaken every second year. Because these tours are the result of invitations by choirs abroad, our choristers are hosted by families of these choirs’ members. In this way South African children have the opportunity to see and experience foreign cultures’ lifestyles. They also learn to act independently and to communicate across language boundaries.

Tour 2008: This year the choir will depart on 14 September, by invitation of choirs in Germany, Finland and Estonia, on its 9th international concert tour. The ECCC has in the past shared the stage with many international acclaimed choirs, amongst others the Vienna Boys Choir.

Development program: In 2004 a development program was established. This means that talented children, who can normally not afford singing in the choir, are granted the opportunity to join the choir. Thanks to all opportunities offered by the choir, these children can develop together with their peers from all economic groups and backgrounds. Unfortunately no sponsorship could be obtained for the development program over the past two years, which placed a huge financial burden upon the choir. In spite of this fact, 25 children formed part of this program during the first three years and another 12 were identified for the 2008 year. We would however like to further extend this program.

Invitation to all readers:
