Biography

Drakensberg Boys’ Choir School is a school near the small town of Winterton, in the heart of the Drakensberg mountain range in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

It educates the members of Drakensberg Boys’ Choir. The school was founded in 1967 and claims to be the only choir school in Africa. Enrollment is approximately 100 boys aged 9 to 15. The school has a 600-seat auditorium constructed in 1995 and holds weekly concerts. The Choir has toured the USA, Europe, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Mauritius and many African countries.

There are two clearly separate but at the same time closely related aspects of the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir School. There is the School itself and then there is the Choir, and the one cannot operate independently of the other. It is this co-existence that provides the Choir School with its unique and dynamic character. It is a unique institution in that it is the only Choir School in Africa, and there are probably very few other such similar musical / educational combinations in the world.
The Choir is representative of the multi-faceted cultures that make up South Africa. It has created a new trend in the international choral scene that transcends the conventional. A unique style of diversity - Bach, Beethoven, Freddie Mercury, African sounds, Jazz, Folk, etc.

The Drakensberg Boys’ Choir captivates audiences with its unique and diverse style of music, which demonstrates the versatility and depth of the Choir’s ability.
