Bongani Magatyana Workshop in Vancouver


We are so delighted to have Bongani Magatyana coming to British Columbia from Cape Town in October! On top of his Choral Residencies, Bongani will be offering this open, public workshop – open to EVERYONE! We will be learning traditional and contemporary South African choral music – we will learn by ear and will be learning the accompanying movements. All are welcome!

SUNDAY OCT 15th 1:00-6:00 pm

BONGANI MAGATYANA is a music director, composer, and theatrical producer. Born in Cape Town in a township called Old Crossroads; his father was a self-taught choir conductor in the Old Apostolic Church (OAC). Magatyana’s father taught him to read and write tonic solfa music notation at a very young age, and he dreamed of becoming a church choir conductor like his father. Today, he conducts a 120-voice OAC choir as well as a male community choir. His folk-inspired choral compositions—popular pieces for South Africa’s major choral competitions—are performed by choirs across South Africa and internationally.

When: Sunday Oct 15th 1:00-6:00 pm

Where: Pacific Spirit United Church – 2195 West 45th Ave
