The acclaimed Stellenbosch University Choir will give a special performance in Pretoria on Monday 23 September and on 24  September in Soweto as part of the University's Heritage Day celebrations.

The SU Choir has an outstanding performance history. Under the baton of conductor André van der Merwe, it has garnered international recognition as one of the most talented participants in the World Choir Games. Since the Choir first took part in these World Choir Games in 2004, it has systematically risen through the ranks to become the best of 1 000 amateur choirs in the world.

“The SU Choir has become synonymous with excellence," says Saartjie Botha, Director of the Toyota SU Woordfees. “Students from across the country apply to study at Stellenbosch University just for the opportunity to sing in the world-renowned Choir. The members fully live the motto 'Proudly South African' as ambassadors for SU and for their country, both at home and across the world."

Ticket prices for the Pretoria performance range from R150 to R230 per person and can be booked via Computicket.
