CARTER High head girl, Cecilia W’emedi and deputy head girl of the KZN Midlands Youth Choir, Sinethemba Lwazi Mkhize, both members of the KZN Midlands Youth Choir, jetted off to Magdeburg, Germany, to compete in the “Grand Prix of Nations” which featured more than 100 registered choirs from Germany, Britain, Latvia, Turkey, Brazil, New Zealand, China and the U.S.

This was a prestigious event and only the top choirs in the world were invited to compete.

Cecilia and Sinethemba were selected to join the KZN Midlands Youth Choir after being recognised for their singing voices and endured many hours of preparation and fund-raising to be afforded the opportunity of competing internationally.

The choir competed in various categories and were victorious when they earned gold for Folk Lore and two silver medals for two other performances.

Cecilia described her experience as a “once in a life time opportunity” and thanked the KZN Midlands Youth Choir for making her dreams come true.

She also thanked Jenny Kirn, Carter High choir mistress, for her guidance and support, for without her teachings, the trip would not have been made possible. - Supplied
