Drakensberg Boys Choir

Drakensberg Boys Choir

Drakensberg Boys Choir

The Drakensberg Boys' Choir was founded in 1965, and had a total of twenty students. The goal was to create a multiracial, multicultural choir school that would rival the Vienna Boys' choirs. The group now boasts international acclaim, and is widely regarded as one of the best boys' choirs in the world. Extremely competitive auditions are held throughout South Africa annually, and today the choir has an enrollment of about one hundred boys varying in age between nine and fifteen.

Their popular performances have taken them to the United States on numerous occasions, on of which saw them receiving a special award from Disney's Magic Kingdom. The group has travelled to Canada, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, England, Finland, Switzerland, Turkey, and have even been requested to sing for the Pope, in the Vatican City. Additionally, they have toured Australia, various Asian countries and much of Africa including Botswana, Egypt, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, and Zimbabwe.

The world renowned choir performs for an auditorium of six hundred seats, often filled to capacity in concerts and music festivals which feature some of the country's most popular artists. The first portion of each concert is reserved strictly classical music and features the works of greats such as Bach, Handel, Mozart or Beethoven. The second half of the performance almost always includes a hidden surprise or two - jazz, folk music, or music by Freddie Mercury - a magnificent musical variety truly appreciated by enthusiasts. This is not simple music by any means. The boys take on complex melodies and difficult rhythms and are extremely good at offering music from the different genres. The choir can cater to a variety of audiences from young to old.
