Williams Saints Choir and Stormy Monday Band – from Bach to The Beatles
The Williams Saints Ladies’ Choir, based in the Upper Highway area, is a versatile, entertaining and feisty group of twenty singers who cover both the Classical and Light Music genre. Originally founded in 1982, Bessie Williams gathered a group of music enthusiasts together and for many years Bessie hosted the rehearsals while accompanying the choir on the piano. In 2005, soprano soloist Pat Haley gradually succeeded Bessie as conductor of the choir and with her accompanist, Helen Nel, successfully trained the choir for more than a decade. In 2017, retired St Mary’s Music department colleagues Ronél Perks and accompanist Priscilla Crundwell, took over the reins and invited past St Mary’s DSG singers to join the choir, hence the amalgamated name, the Williams Saints Choir.
“Our choir has expanded to include singers from across the greater Durban area,” explained Ronél Perks, Conductor. “Our repertoire is wide and includes favourite classics such as Pachelbel’s Canon in D, Bach in Swingle Singers’ style, Mozart’s haunting Lacrimosa from his Requiem and the beautiful Flower Duet from the opera Lakmé performed by St Mary’s Old Girls Liza Hastie and Sarah Walker. In a lighter vein we also sing the Carpenter’s Top of the World, Laurika Rauch’s Blouberg se Strand, laid-back Jazz Standards and as a finale, a Medley of Music from the Sixties with a dramatic introduction by Highway-based Voice Movement Therapist Gina Holloway-Mulder."
The connection between this dynamic choir and the band is Sylvia Tempest who, as a member of both groups, inspires audiences with her love for music and her spirited performances. Stormy Monday members met in 2013 at the Westville Theatre Club and spontaneously decided to form a Band. They perform pop and rock covers with Tempest on Vocals and Keys, Hylton Blignault on Vocals and Guitar, Adrian Haycock on Bass and Richard Tempest on Drums. Their repertoire includes music by Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, Pat Benatar, T-Rex, The Cars, David Bowie, Suzi Quatro, The Doors, Joan Armatrading. Past gigs include Monteseel Music Festival, Music in the Shed, Emoyeni Country Lodge and Music in the Hills.
“Our performance dates are 24th and 25th of August at the Rhumbelow Theatre, Tina’s Hotel in Kloof. The whole family can enjoy a traditional Choral programme and the beautiful voices of our Williams Saints Choir interspersed with toe-tapping input by Stormy Monday,” concluded Perks.
