In light of the upcoming Easter season, the Soweto Central Chorus of the Salvation Army will once again bring you a musically world class show at this year’s 4th annual Easter Songs of Praise taking place at the Linder Auditorium on Friday, 12 April.
This year, music revellers at large will enjoy a show boasting performances by headline acts such as 2015 Idols finalist Mmatema, award-winning gospel music sensation Dumi Mkokstad, Afro-pop favourite Samthing Soweto and ex-Joyous Celebration lead singer Xolani Mdlalose.
“This year, we are elated to have these musical geniuses as part of this monumental event. The Easter Songs of Praise aims to encourage people to find the peace that comes from salvation, through music. It’s important that the messages of hope through our music reaches and touches the lives of everyone who hears us,” said Manzini Zungu, the Musical Director.
Founded in 2012, the Soweto Central Chorus is a unique brigade and musical division of the Salvation Army’s Soweto Central Corps. The anointed choir boasts over 80 members who have broken generational boundaries. Since it was founded seven years ago, the Soweto Central Chorus managed to catch the attention of some of South Africa’s upper echelons. In 2016, the choir was invited to perform at King Goodwill Zwelithini’s palace-home to the world-renowned Zulu King.
The choir’s core mandate is to minister through music and staying true to this, it has spread the word of God through song in events like the Road to Calvary, the 3rd Easter Songs of Praise 2018, Carols by Candlelight and performances at other Salvation Army Corps.
Tickets to the Easter Songs of Praise will be available from Computicket from Tuesday 26 March at a cost of R150 – R200 per person.
