Choirs get ready

2015-04-30 16:14

THE Matjhabeng Publicity Association will kick-start its choral music festival hosting auditions for choirs within the six towns forming part of the Matjhabeng Local Municipality.

Auditions pave the way for the final of the choral musical event titled Clash of the Choirs. This year’s final is planned for August. The competition makes provision for two categories, adult and school choirs with an ultimate winner in both categories. The choral competition is open to all cultures, thereby ensuring participation for all those interested.

Auditions for choirs will start on 25 April ending 14 June. After completion of auditions, selected choirs will then compete on a knock-out basis to decide the overall winners in both categories.

Audition dates are as follows: Allanridge (25 and 26 April), Odendaalsrus (16 and 17 May), Virginia (23 and 24 May), Hennenman (30 and 31 May), Ventersburg (6 and 7 June) and Welkom (13 and 14 June).

The entry fee is R300 per choir and must be paid on the day of auditions. Choirs who fail to register or pay, will not be allowed to enter the competition. Entry forms, audition dates and venues, including song requirements and competition rules are available at the association’s offices or at the Ernest Oppenheimer Theatre. Interested choirs must fill in the entry form and email it to the Matjhabeng Publicity Association at
