Accompanist: Marnus Greyling

Marnus Greyling (23) is currently doing a Master's degree in music at the University of Pretoria. His music tuition commenced from age five in piano, when he also gave his first public performance. Marnus started his organ lessons relatively late with Ockie Vermeulen in 2009 and in the same year matriculated at HoŽrskool Kempton Park with five distinctions. He currently receives tuition with Wim Viljoen, specialising in organ performance. Marnus received the top prize in the National organ competitions of SAKOV (Southern African Church Organist Society) in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. In 2012 he was awarded a roll of honour for his Final (Grade 8) organ examination at UNISA. He also received his Teacher's Licentiate (UTLM) in piano from UNISA. Marnus completed his BMus Honour's degree in 2013 cum laude. He qualified for both the 2011 and 2012 Pretorium Trust Bursary competitions and in 2012 was announced winner. Marnus advanced to the final round of the National ATKV Muziq competition in 2012, in the piano category. In the same year he was accompanist to the TUKS Camerata (Pretoria University Choir).
His performances of large works with choirs as soloist on the organ include Mozart's Coronation Mass, Hšndel's Dixit Dominus and Mendelssohn's Elijah. His performances for choir and orchestra include Faure's Requiem, Bach's Wachet auf and Magnificat, Charpentier's Te Deum and Elgarís Dream of Gerontius. He has performed with the Johannesburg Symphony Choir, Johannesburg Festival Orchestra, Gauteng Philharmonic and Chanticleer Singers, to name a few. In 2013 he performed the entire Four Seasons by Vivaldi with internationally acclaimed violinist, Daniel Rowland and some of South Africa's finest string players at the Brooklyn Theatre. A highlight for 2014 was performing with internationally renowned Dutch violinist, Antoinette Lohmann in a baroque performance of Historically Informed Practice.
Marnus is highly sought after as a concert organist, accompanist, chamber musician and teacher. Marnus frequently teaches at the Deutsche Internationale Schule in Johannesburg. He is currently the Head Organist of St George's Anglican Church in Parktown, Johannesburg, where a new Rieger organ was installed in 2012.
