On wings of Song

With: Gretel Coetzee (soprano), Handri Loots (flute), Ebbie Becker (piano)

The prolific bird life and beautiful landscapes surrounding the village of Wakkerstroom is the inspiration for this concert. Whenever bird-song is imitated in music, the flute comes to mind. Soprano Gretel Coetzee (Blaas op die Pampoenstingel, Wakkerstroom Music Festival 2015) collaborates with well-loved flautist Handri Loots and pianist from Windhoek, Ebbie Becker to present songs about nightingales, larks, green valleys, trees and nature. Music for this programme is by Saint-Saëns, Delibes, Brahms, Schumann, De Villiers and Barber.
