Multiple choirs in extraordinary venues and diverse and sizeable audiences. You will experience African rhythms, dancing, and their wonderful, unique singing. This festival is different from our other festivals as it includes adult choirs, university choirs, as well as children’s and youth choirs, and if you take part in this festival your choir will have the opportunity to perform your own repertoire in several concerts, collaborating with excellent South African groups, each conducted by their own music director. You will also have the opportunity to learn and perform brand new commissions by renowned South African composers.
