We are 90 talented children (aged 9-16) who are passionate about choral singing in the picturesque Garden Route of South Africa.
Since our inception, in 1996, we have performed with some of the best choirs in the world and have been featured on South African radio and TV programmes on a regular basis!
As one of South Africa's foremost amateur regional children's choirs, our members have been carefully auditioned and selected from several primary and secondary schools from George, Knysna, Oudtshoorn and Mossel Bay, and are dedicated to being ambassadors of music!
We rehearse every Friday (approximately 105 hrs per year), several Saturdays, and at least 9 days during school holidays, in George, under the auspices of musical director, Jan-Erik Swart, and a team of dedicated voice coaches, trainers, management members and parents.
Our singing is vibrant, clear and stirring, with a musical discipline extending far beyond our ages. Our choral sound is unique!
We are a division of the South Cape Music Academy, a non-profit, public benefit company, and are supported by a voluntary Parents' Association which strives to invest in our children’s vocal development and to provide the best musical porformance experiences available.
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 and the USA.
We have undertaken 6 concert tours of Europe (1998, 2000, 2003, 2007, 2011, 2014) and competed in the 8th IFCM Choral World Games, in July 2014!
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 have received several accolades for exceptional performances throughout our history.
We perform between 20-30 times per year, and are taking South Africa by storm with our challenging repertoire, our "fresh, natural choral sound" and our "dynamic musical energy!"
