National Choir Festival
It is that time of the year again when we embark on our annual journey of the Old Mutual National Choir Festival. As the journey begins, we would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of Old Mutual, to wish all the choirs everything of the best as they begin their preparations for the 2012 competition.
The National Choir Festival is a national choral music competition conducted at district and regional/provincial level culminating in a National Final. It is an annual event that runs from January to December. Old Mutual has given financial backing for this project since 1988. The name National Choir Festival (NCF) is widely recognized as a brand of its own in the choral music fraternity. The project goes beyond the borders of South Africa, with choirs from Lesotho, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Swaziland joining South African choirs in this exciting music development venture.
It is considered to be the biggest and best of the choir festivals and draws attendants and fans from all over the country and SADC region.
