Develop a life-long love for music alongside friends

Cape Town Children's Choir enables young singers to develop their musical skill in a positive, stimulating environment and provides a place where they are surrounded by musically talented friends who strive for excellence.

A choir of excellence

A choir of excellence requires discipline, concentration and hard work from all its members. Our goal is for rehearsals to be inspiring and musically satisfying where choristers have fun and experience a deep sense of enjoyment as they sing together.

 

Our goal is to grow to about 80 members and to become locally, nationally, and internationally known.  Our name, Cape Town Children’s Choir, was chosen for the purpose of representing our city and country.  As the choir continues to establish itself, we will be participating in regional, national and international choir festivals, eisteddfods and competitions.

Our music

​Our repertoire encompasses a wide variety of styles and genres, catering to a range of interests.  We sing pop songs, musical theatre and film features, folk songs, gospel, classical and sacred songs, spirituals, and vernacular songs in South African and other languages. Movement is added where appropriate, but the emphasis is on singing to a high standard with a beautiful tone.  Recently, we were privileged to add a song to our repertoire which was commissioned by us and written by two South African composers. 

The choir sings in unison, and in two, three or four parts. Choristers are tested for their appropriate voice parts during auditions and this is re-evaluated regularly. We sing acapella (unaccompanied) or with piano accompaniment, and sometimes add various instrumentations when necessary such as flute, strings, percussion, etc.
