Choir wins nationally

The Eunice High School’s Vitae Cantamus Choir excelled in the kykNET Sing in Harmonie TV series, in which school choirs from across the country competed.

Along with the Hoërskool Gars­fontein, Eunice won this prestigious competition, of which the final round took place from 21 to 24 September in Gauteng.

There were 15 choirs taking part in the final competition for senior choirs.

Eunice’s choir is led by Retha Visser as conductor, Leona Geldenhuys as artistic director and Dana Cilliers as the choir’s accompanist.

Several Bloemfontein schools took part in the local elimination round, including Grey College (primary), the Jim Fouché Primary School and Hoër Meisieskool Oranje.

The choir had to perform two works, including one in Afrikaans.

Mag Marais, deputy headmistress at Eunice, said the school focussed on the repetoire that the choir performed at the World Choir Games in July in Pretoria, where it received a gold and a silver medal.

The first prize for Sing in Harmonie in the senior category is a R10 000 cash prize, the recording of a ten-track CD (worth R20 000), the making of a music video (worth R25 000) and the reproducing of 100 CD’s (worth R2 500).

After this huge success, the choir is preparing for a Europian tour during the December holidays.

They will be touring to Austria, Germany and Italy and visit Prague, Passau, Salzburg, Kufstein and St Christina.

In Italy they wil perform during the third International Symposium on Children’s Choirs, held in Brixen.
