The Gauteng Choristers, a choir based in the Gauteng region, has developed into one of the cornerstones of choral and classical music of our time.
Formed in 1998, they have won numerous awards over the years, including being crowned national champions for the Old Mutual/Telkom National Choir Festival in 2006 and 2001 (Standard Category), second in 2004 (Large Category) and 2000 and third in 2007 and 1999.
They also made history in 2007, when they toured Europe performing ‘Porgy ‘n Bess’, becoming the first South African choir to perform an opera in Europe.
During 2006, besides winning all the major national music competitions in South Africa, the Gauteng Choristers took part in the Opera Extravaganza that took place at the Linder Auditorium in Johannesburg. The choir not only enjoyed a successful concert but also recorded a CD and DVD called 8 Years of Musical Excellence.
The Gauteng Choristers takes the development of young choristers very seriously. Many of the choristers are studying music at institutions such as the University of Cape Town, Hartford University (USA), Pretoria Technikon and others are undergoing professional instruction under the auspices of the Black Tie Ensemble.
The choir has a membership of 96 choristers, is opened to all races and is not prejudiced due to religious, cultural or political associations.
