Two of the prides of the province, Nelson Mandela University Choir and the Strelitzia Mastrimba Band will be performing in Uitenhage on Thursday, 24 August at Strelitzia High School.

The school’s mastrimba band and choir will open the concert where-after the NMU Choir will be the main musical performers of the evening.

NMU choir conductor Junita Lamprecht van Dijk hails from Uitenhage where she matriculated at Brandwag High School. Her career as professional choir conductor commenced on a high note at Framesby High School as the choir was the runner-up of a competition in Holland and they enjoyed the honour of performing in front of Pope John Paul II.

During 1994 she established the internationally acclaimed university choir of Nelson Mandela University. She later established a choir conducting programme at NMU in conjunction with Norgeskorfbund. She is also, together with her husband Dr Peter Louis van Dijk, responsible for post graduate training of choir conductors across the country. The NMU choir has for the past decade on an annual basis been part of international choir competitions and have travelled to Argen- tina, China, Beijing, Macau, Austria and Spain. This year they have been invited again to perform in China.

The concert starts at 18:30 and tickets (R20/person) will be available at the door as well as from Strelitzia choir members or at Strelitzia’s office during school hours.
