KEARSNEY CHOIR TO GERMANY (article first published : 2004-06-28)

The international award-winning Kearsney College Choir will present three A Taste of the Olympics concerts ahead of their departure for Germany where they will defend their title at the Choir Olympics.

In July 2000, the Choir received gold medals in the pop choral and folklore categories and were named Olympic Champions at the Choir Olympics.

The farewell concerts will showcase what they will perform at the Olympics ahead of their departure on July 9.

Kearsney director of music Angela Stevens formed the Kearsney College Chamber Choir in 1996 and it has developed a versatile repertoire, including sacred, secular and ethnic music, as well as gumboot dancing. The choir’s talents have taken them to the International Youth and Music Festival in Vienna, to Paris, Budapest and London’s Covent Garden and Leicester Square. Two years ago they were invited to sing with the Vienna Boys’ Choir in Austria.

Boys at Kearsney are encouraged to develop their musical talents alongside those on the sports fields. The choir recently recorded its fifth CD – Songs of Africa and other favourites.

The 50-strong group can be heard in the Henderson Hall at Kearsney on June 29 and July 1 and at the Frere Road Presbyterian Church in Durban on June 30.

Book through Rose on 031 765 9659 and for the church at the door.
