The UCT Choir in 2014

Looking at the second semester of  2013, one can undoubtedly say that it was exciting and oh-so-busy for the UCT Choir. Rehearsing every Monday and Thursday between 19h00-21h00 at the South African College of Music.

The UCT Choir in 2013

2013 was a year of change and excitement for the UCT Choir – with a large turnover in members as well as a brand new conductor, Kurt Haupt. 

The year started as usual, by performing the national anthem for our own UCT rugby team, the Ikey tigers. Next up was camp – when the choir gets a chance to get to know each other better as well as dive into a new pile of repertoire, which was spent in the beautiful surroundings of Llandudno.

The UCT Choir in 2012

2012 was a very busy year for the UCT Choir. Still under the direction of John Woodland at this time, the year started with participating in the Infecting the City public arts festival in March. In May, the UCT Choir was awarded three diplomas (90-100%) as well as the prize for the Most Outstanding Senior Choir in the Cape Town Eisteddfod. Later that year the UCT Choir participated in the national finals of the ATKV-Animato Koorkompetisie and won the awards for Best University Choir and Best African Works in the Youth Choir category.

The UCT Choir in 2011

In 2011, the UCT Choir was invited to open the stage for both Sir David Attenborough and HRH The Prince of Wales at public lectures hosted by the Vice-Chancellor.

The UCT Choir in 2010

2010 marked the UCT Choir's 25th anniversary. Under the direction of John Woodland, and with a strong committee handling everything behind the scenes, the UCT Choir had an oustanding year, and one filled with many firsts. The year always begins with the choir's participationg in the Last Night of the Proms charity concert series produced by the Wynberg Rotary Club, an endeavour which this year raised over R3 million for local charity Childline. After an intensive workshop "camp" weekend in April, the choir performed its mid-year winter concert at St Paul's Church in Rondebosch.
