Join Richard Cock and the Chanticleer Singers for an evening of music to celebrate the life of the artist Dirk Meerkotter whose centenary falls this year. The music will be combined with visual illustrations to demonstrate Meerkotter’s enormous diversity and creativity. The Artworks have inspired the choice of music which ranges from early French music, to music by Lauridsen, van Dijk, Rheinberger and the premiere of a work, “Music for a While” by Este Meerkotter, granddaughter of the artist.


Linden Youth Choir

Join the Linden Youth Choir in celebrating the life and work of the artist Dirk Meerkotter who would have been 100 this year. For the first time in more than a decade some of his Iconic works will be shown and the music will be combined with visuals and the actual art.

The Linden Youth Choir has an extensive repertoire of music. When they burst into song you can expect anything from Leonard Cohen’s Alleluya to the Gloria of Vivaldi. Favourites from well-known musicals such as Les Misérables, Afrikaans folk songs and ballads and even Bohemian Rhapsody are all regularly included in the concert programmes.
