INKOSI YETHU YINQABA (article first published : 2002-04-21)

The Durban Serenade Choral Society launched its first ever CD entitled Inkosi yethu yiNqaba in Durban earlier in April. Including its national award-winning songs, the CD is a spiritual yet lively new release which should have a strong appeal for choral and gospel music enthusiasts.

As leaders in this competition-dominated industry, DSCS believes that the CD marks the beginning of a road projected at defining the choral music industry as a well defined and established market. The aim is to encourage more choirs to focus on audience appeal and thereby contribute effectively to the creation of jobs.

The Durban Serenade Choral Society has been in existence for about 18 years and the many titles they have won bear testimony to their excellence and dedication to creating perfect music that is enjoyed nationwide. Since winning their first National Championship in 1997, they have steadily grown in stature to assume the title of National Champions. They won the Old Mutual Telkom National Choir Festival for four years in succession (1997, 1998, 1999 & 2000) and are the holders of the SAB Champion of Champions title.

"For a long time we have been bombarded by music enthusiasts with requests for recordings by our choir, whom they regard as a national treasure,” says Notha Maphumulo, the Marketing Director of The Durban Serenade Choral Society. “This CD is a response to their requests and also a giant leap towards capturing the history as was recorded at various venues. We hope that our music richly blesses the souls of many that will listen to the CD."
