Meet the Voxies: Liesemari Dewet (A1)
Q: What is your day job? A: Occupational Therapist working in adult neuro rehabilitation.
Q: How many years have you been singing in a choir? A: 24 years (since grade 1 and I've never stopped ever since).
Q: What has been your most memorable experience with Vox to date? A: "Sirkel-Sang" in a candlelit church building when we welcomed the new Voxies. Everyone's faces were somewhat hidden in the shadows, but we all shared the music and I truely experienced love and acceptance in that moment.
Q: What do you enjoy the most about being part of Vox? A: I feel loved amongst people who also love singing and making music together. Even though we are all so different, we function as a beautiful unit once we start singing and that then makes us connect even more. The Voxies are all so unique and it is an honour spending time with them every week.
Q: Which piece is your favourite that you have performed with Vox Chamber Choir? A: There are so many! Currently "On that Holy Night" - Franco Prinsloo.
Q: What do you look forward to the most with Vox Chamber Choir?
A: Performing "Kruis van Liefde", our conductor, Franco Prinsloo's newly composed Easter Oratorio. The world really needs to hear and experience this!❤️
Q: If you could have a superpower, what would it be? A: Being able to speak all languages on earth, including speaking to animals.🦒
Q: What are you reading/binge watching at the moment: 1. Reading - 7 dae (Deon Meyer); 2. Watching - New Girl.
Q: Name another hobby/interest you participate in? A: Running and spending time outdoors.
Q: Name a part in a piece we perform that gives you goosebumps every time: A: In "On that Holy Night", there is a section which makes me cry every time: "Mary held him tight...".
Q: List 3 things on your bucket list: 1. Doing a music-tour through South America; 2. Planning and hosting my own market; 3. Attending any big music festival again (post Covidia-Anne of course).
