RAIL ENGINEERING DURBAN WINS (article first published : 2007-10-17)

Durban’s choristers have coasted to victory at the 2007 Transnet National Internal Choirs Competition (ICC), relegating two-time winners Port Elizabeth to second place.

During the thrilling annual choral competition held at the Alexander Theatre in Braamfontein on October 6, the Rail Engineering Durban choir proved to admiring listeners that their singing is truly music to one’s ears.

Hosted by the Transnet Foundation, the transport parastatal’s corporate social investment arm, this annual choral competition encourages Transnet employees nationwide to participate in competitive choral singing, in a bid to boost morale.

“The Transnet Internal Choirs Competition is an opportunity for our employees to feel proud of being employees of Transnet, and to celebrate one company through one common voice,” explained Eunice Maluleke, Head of the Transnet Foundation. “So, although this is a competition, and although choristers come from diverse business divisions, the spirit that prevails is the Transnet spirit.”

The well-attended concert produced several moments of aural delight, as soloists and massed choirs raised the rafters of the theatre with their dramatic and joyous renditions of well-known choral pieces.
