If you’re in the UK on Sunday 1 July – you’re in luck! One of the most beautiful choirs in the world – the award-winning Stellenbosch University Choir – will be performing for one night only in London… on their way to performing at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod in Wales (which we hope they win!).
The choir’s videos have gone viral around the world, giving goosebumps to everyone from teenagers to grannies… and making South Africans so, so proud. (Watch their rendition of ‘Say Something’ below – it’s received over 3.2 million views!)
The Stellenbosch University Choir was ranked FIRST again last year for the fifth consecutive year on the Interkultur’s ranking list of 1,000 international choirs! And in future will now compete not only against amateur choirs, but also professional.
André van der Merwe, the choir’s musical director and conductor, says: “Friends! Are you in London 1 July at 19h00? Then come listen to us singing our hearts out in the lovely Purcel Room, Southbank Centre!”
André told SAPeople: “It will be most exciting to share our diverse repertoire with UK audiences!”
