Kearsney College has performed at the World Choir Games and people just can’t get enough of their incredible talent. Take a look below.

 

The World Choir Games take place every second-year. This year the event is being hosted by South Africa in Tshwane. It is estimated that about 345 choirs will be coming to South Africa, that is around 20,000 performers.

The competition was launched in 2000 and has been greatly successful. This year the competition will take place from the 4th to the 14th of July. The competition is taking place in South Africa as part of the Nelson Mandela 100 Centenary.

The Kearsney College Choir has become synonymous with vibrant, energetic performances and slick, professional productions. With its signature blend of classical, pop and indigenous music, the choir has built up a large international following of appreciative supporters.

Their latest performance was a military styled production and performance of “We didn’t start the fire” by Billy Joel. They took part in the Scenic Pop category and people LOVED their performance. The school is a big-time winner at the World Choir Games, at the 7th World Choir Games in Cincinnati, USA (July 2012), the choir was crowned World Champions in Scenic folklore for the third time. At the World Choir Games in Latvia (2014), the choir won the Scenic Pop category and won the Champion title once again, as well as gold medals for the Folklore and Young Male Choir competitions.
