Lucca, Italy (28 March 2024) — The Akustika Chamber Singers were in Italy for the Vox Lucensis Concorso Corale Internazionale and have been named the 2024 Winners of the competition. The proudly South African choir from Pretoria was overjoyed with the win.

The Interkultur organisation hosts up to 14 international choir competitions and festivals around the globe each year. Founded by Günter Titsch, it was born to bring together people of all countries, cultures, and world views in peaceful competitions.

This event featured choirs from around the world and took place in Lucca, Italy. Choirs joined from Denmark, Germany, Poland and beyond.

The choir also won the SACRA Category and the Mixed Choir Category. The choir, conducted by Christo Burger, say they sang for South Africa, when they won the competition.
