About Us

We are an amateur regional children's choir based in George, in the beautiful Garden Route of the Western Cape, South Africa, comprising 90 talented children (aged 9-16) who are passionate about singing together in harmony.

Since our inception, in 1996, we have performed with many of the best choirs in the world and have been featured on South African radio and TV programmes on a regular basis.

Our members are carefully auditioned and selected from public, private and homeschooled choristers representing the centres of George, Knysna, Oudtshoorn, Mossel Bay, Hartenbos, Ladismith and Plettenberg Bay, and are proud ambassadors of choral music for South Africa.

 

Rehearsals take place every Friday afternoon for 3 1/2 hours (approximately 105 hrs per year), several Saturdays, and at least 9 days during school holidays, under the auspices of musical director, Jan-Erik Swart, and a team of dedicated voice coaches, trainers, management members and parents.

Our choral sound is unique, vibrant, clear and stirring, with a musical discipline extending far beyond our ages.

 
Our parents are our greatest supporters, striving to invest in their children’s vocal development by working hard to make unique performance opportunities a reality.

Since our founding in 1996, we have received critical acclaim from a wide range of choral specialists and practitioners, from as far afield as Finland, Germany, Belgium, Russia, Canada, Australia and the USA.

We have undertaken 7 concert tours of Europe (1998, 2000, 2003, 2007, 2011, 2014, 2016) and have received many other invitations to tour worldwide.

We have recorded 9 cds, one dvd, and several live concerts during our existence.

We are proud exponents of South African multicultural transformation in choral music and society at large. 

We are proud of the many accolades for exceptional performances we have achieved throughout our history and are currently ranked under the top 500 choirs, worldwide.

We dream of becoming one of the foremost choral entities in the world by extablishing a choral school and being performers of the highest note, in our own right!
