The Drakensberg Boys Choir are in the country for a series of live shows from 1 to 6 November and are performing in various towns.

The choir consist of boys aged between 9 and 13. The purpose of the choir is to feed its members with a spirit of adventure and exploration whilst nurturing the development of the mind and expression of their innate musical talent.

All live shows start at 19:00, with the first show held in Windhoek at Droombos. The choir also performed at the Kalahari Anib Lodge on 1 November. Tickets for these shows were sold out.
The Namib Desert Lodge hosts the choir on 2 November before the choir moves to The Dome on in Swakopmund on 3 November and then to the Etosha Safari Camp. The choir will return to Windhoek for a final show at NG Church in Eros on 6 November.

According to Namibian tour manager Erik Linde, the choir toured overseas at least once a year until the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic put a stop to this practise. “So, we are really looking forward to our tour to Namibia after nearly two years of staying at home.” Linde said that audiences can look to a varied repertoire ranging from classical to folk, and pop to African music.
Vaughan van Zyl is the conductor of the choir with Liza Joubert of Liza se Klavier fame being the accompanist. Tickets cost N$200 each. For bookings, visit www.webtickets.com.na or any Pick n Pay store.
