KEARSNEY CHOIR SCORES GOLD IN SINGAPORE
The internationally acclaimed Kearsney College choir has done it again.

The choir won the Folklore Category at the 10th Orientale Concentus International Choral Festival in Singapore recently. The choir achieved a score of 92,2, with no other choir having yet earned a Grade 1 Gold in any category at this year's competition. They came second in the Equal Voices X Youth Category with a score of 81,3, earning their second gold at the event.

The Kearsney choir is the world's second-most highly decorated choir. They have been awarded 13 gold and six silver medals at the World Choir Games between 2000 and 2014, the Prize of the City of Vienna at the 33rd International Youth and Music Festival and were invited to represent Africa at the "Rhythms of One World" Music Festival in New York and Geneva. The choir has garnered a large international following as a result of their lively, polished performances of pop, classical and indigenous music. They have a distinctly African element in each performance and the multicultural group work cohesively, producing an award-winning sound.

Commenting on the victory, headmaster Elwyn van den Aardweg said, "We're extremely proud of the choir's achievements in Singapore. The boys' colourful exuberance, energy and vigour, matched with top-notch musical performances, highlight all that can be achieved if differences are put aside and a common goal is sought. The pride in African culture, the passion with which it is presented and the obvious teamwork are inspiring. Their unity and harmony are shown in and out of performance". V Source: www.news24.co.za
