The Pietermaritzburg Children's Choir will be hosting auditions for children between the ages of 9-16 years to join the choir.

The Pietermaritzburg Children’s Choir is the premiere regional children’s choir with a history of singing excellence and leadership. Under the current capable hands of conductor, Simon Bester, with accompanist, Anne Duthie, the choir has continued to stand out in their featured performances through this year.

The choir’s manifesto is simply a love of singing. The choir practices once a week during the school term at Epworth Preparatory School Assembly Room on Wednesdays from 17h15 to 19h15. All choir practices are compulsory unless there is a valid reason.

The choir also runs regular practices such as workshops which entail extra practice on a Saturday when deemed necessary by the choral conductor. The dates will be given in advance. The choir also runs a compulsory camp each year and is excluded from the monthly fees. Parents are asked to help with transport.

Auditions will take place at Epworth Preparatory School on the following Wednesdays from 16h15 to 17h15:
