10th World Choir Games in South Africa

Personal message

The University of Pretoria Youth Choir (UPYC) is a regional, multicultural youth choir consists of 90 singers between the ages of 14 and 19 years from various schools in the greater Tshwane area. Our singers have benefited greatly from participation in the University of Pretoria Youth Choir, and the experience of singing with this acclaimed group has enriched and will continue to enrich their lives through leadership development, social collaboration and music education. 

In 2018 an international choir competition, the World Choir Games, will take place in South Africa. It is expected that more than 50 000 visitors will attend this event in Pretoria. It will be the biggest and most celebrated choir competition ever to come to the African continent. The UPYC has already participated in this competition in the past and has won three gold medals. We hope to add more gold medals to our collection in 2018.  The choir had been asked to perform in the opening ceremony which will be broadcasted around the world and will be enormous exposure for our country, our city and beautiful young singers.

The registration fee and participation for our 92 Singers -  R76 500.00 to compete in the Championship Competition Youth Choir.  Please help us raise funds for ours singers to represent South Africa.

The principle aim of the Foundation is to adopt schools in need and to encourage and mobilise individuals and companies to join in this effort. The Adopt-A-School Foundation's vision is to be a change-agent of choice that contributes to a learning environment conducive for all South African children, especially the disadvantaged. The Foundation seeks to improve the physical learning environment of schools that lack basic facilities so that they can become centres of excellence by developing partnerships between them and their adopters.

To date the Foundation has adopted 57 schools in 7 of the 9 provinces.
