The last few years proved the incredible diversity of the South African choral landscape. The Choral Celebration Festivals builds upon the success of the most recent World Choir Games that took place in Tshwane from 4 – 14 July 2018 and showcased the value of music and specific choral music to create tolerance for other nations, showcase cultural diversity and brought people together to create life long friendships and unforgettable memories.
South Africa is a powerhouse of choirs if we take the 76 Gold medals and 7 Category winnings into account.The 2019 Choral Celebration Festival series of the Public Benefit Organisation(no 930066027) Choral Celebration Network Foundation, showcased 84 South African choirs of all age groups and genre’s from all 9 provinces in 14 festivals nationally, engaging more than 6000 singers.
These events received incredible feedback from audiences, singers and conductors alike and created opportunities for choirs to show their uniqueness and to build networks for performing together and sharing their passion for music to achieve better understanding and tolerance. We will not only expand the Choral Celebration Festival series to include another 2 provinces as hosts in 2020, but engage with more choirs in 30 concerts over 11 festivals nation wide.
2020 will also see the launch of our unique product offering where individual singers – conductors who crave to sing comes to mind – and choirs, will work together on a single show that will run over 4 days and include a workshop on the topic, rehearsals with fellow singers, choirs and orchestras and be conducted by leading conductors, performing in world class venues in two exceptional concerts.
