Charlotte Stopforth (mezzo-soprano) also joined the Qahal Musicians and with her unique voice was always in public demand. Together with Johann Nefdt, Val Cornes and Erika Fox at the piano, they performed at different venues. The group enjoyed their concerts in the rural villages. A lovely closeness developed between the group because of their traveling together to concerts. One of the highlights was when Charlotte and Johann presented an “Autumn Soirrée” with Wesley Hlava (guitar) and Celèste Roux (accompanist) in the beautiful old church building of the D R church in Calvinia. Later the Qahal Musicians started to present sacred programmes with Easter, Good Friday, Pentecost, Ascension, Advent and Christmas as themes. Spring, Autumn, Winter and Love were some of the themes for light classical and popular programmes.
