With Scottish highlands-esque rolling hills and the sparkling shores of Africa’s third largest lake, it’s no wonder that Malawi’s spectacular beauty drew international musicians to set up the Lake of Stars Music Festival in 2004. With no dearth of local performance opportunities in centuries-old Presbyterian and Catholic churches all over the country, Malawi’s growing international musical performance and location next to Zambia, Tanzania, South Africa and Mozambique makes it an ideal destination as part of a concert tour in Southern Africa.
Classical Movements has been planning tours to Southern Africa since 1994. With a South African and many musicians on staff, the company has arranged numerous customized tours and collaborations for groups such as the Yale Concert Band, Pacific Boychoir, Morgan State University Choir and Children’s Chorus of Washington. We frequently arrange concert tours around the world for Southern Africa groups such as Drakensberg Boys’ Choir, Voices of Namibia, UCCSA Broadhurst-Botswana and Wits Choir (University of Witwatersrand).
Classical Movements also owns and produces the Ihlombe South African Choral Festival. Since its inception, the festival has presented 125 choirs from various African countries, the United States, Canada, and even Trinidad & Tobago.
