MEET THE VOXIES - S2: Marli Prinsloo

Meet our Spectacular Soprano: Marli Prinsloo #Vox_Tribe



Q: What is your day job?

A: I’m an Attorney. I work as a legal advisor, which I love.


Q: How many years have you been singing in a choir?

A: This is my 15th year singing in a choir. As die gogga eers byt…🥳


Q: What has been your most memorable experience with Vox to date?

A: I’m not able to choose, so I’ll name both: The first, performing our conductor, Franco Prinsloo's oratorio, "Lig van Waarheid" at the end of last year in the NG Universiteitsoord Church. The second would have to be our #Vox_Choir_Camp earlier this year. While the music is obviously always a highlight, I really loved getting to spend uninterrupted time with everyone and really get to know them and bond.



Q: What do you enjoy the most about being part of Vox?

A: Singing (obviously), learning intense vocal technique and my co-choristers. I’ve never had any formal music training, so I learn and sing everything by ear. I love improving my sight reading and learning more about other technical aspects of music.🎼


Q: Which piece is your favourite that you have performed with Vox Chamber Choir?

A: We haven’t actually performed it since I’ve joined Vox, but I already know that it’s going to be "Plant vir my ‘n Boom, André" - an Ingrid Jonker poem set to music by our conductor, Franco Prinsloo. You can listen to it here and understand why:



Q: What do you look forward to the most with Vox Chamber Choir?

A: More music, more learning, more people.❤️


Q: In which Vox-Tet (our octets) are you?

A: Team Sebastian in the Sky with Diamonds (the Blue Team 💙💙💙) I originally didn’t understand the purpose of the Vox-tets when I joined the choir, but apart from serving its purpose in terms of learning and performing music, it’s such a great way to get to know other Vox members in a smaller, more intimate setting. #hou_by_die_BLOU


Q: If you could have a superpower, what would it be?

A: I’d want to be able to transform into different animals. First, I would want to be my Labrador, Jan-Hendrik. Next up, something in the Kruger National Park; probably an African Fish Eagle. Being able to pause time would also be amazing!



Q: What are you reading/binge watching at the moment:

1. Reading – Courage, my Love – Kirsten Beck. I’m a sucker for a good World War II novel;

2. Watching – Basically anything war, crime or law related. I just finished watching The Vatican Girl on Netflix, and it is incredible!


Q: Name another hobby/interest you participate in?

A: I do pilates and travel as often as I can, but at the moment Wedding Planning is my number 1 hobby / interest.😉 I’m marrying Vox Chamber Choir’s BIGGEST fan!


Q: Name a section in "Kruis van Liefde" that gives you goosebumps every time:

A: "XIV. Dink Aan my" - Sometimes I don’t just get goosebumps, I cry a little as well. Not even kidding. Listen to it here:

Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

A: Basically, anywhere I’ve never been. It’s my dream to travel to 30 countries before I’m 30, which means I have to tick four more countries off the list in two years. Hou vir my duim vas! #goals
