Established in 2009 with a special focus on collaboration and service, Classical Movements’ extraordinary Ihlombe! South African Choral Festival features a true diversity of international choirs performing for effusive audiences in every venue imaginable, making for what the Cape Times calls “singing that nourishes the body and soul.” Over the past decade, Ihlombe! has featured nearly 90 choirs from some 10 countries throughout the entirety of South Africa.
From July 1—20, 2018, the 10th anniversary edition of Ihlombe! will honor the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nobel Peace Prize-winning icon Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. In the spirit of Madiba’s prized ideals of “Hope, Freedom & Unity,” select youth and collegiate choirs hailing from five major American cities—Atlanta, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Seattle and Washington, D.C.—will perform 13 collaborative concerts with more than 15 African youth, church and community ensembles, exchanging cultures through shared workshops, side-by-side rehearsals and outreach projects across the Rainbow Nation.
