Reasons to be Proud: Congratulations to Nelson Mandela University Choir Conductor and Music lecturer Junita van Dijk who has been invited to be a member of the esteemed international jury during the World Choir Games which will be held in Tshwane, South Africa in July 2018.

 

The World Choir Games is the largest choir competition in the world.

The idea to create an event like the World Choir Games is based on the Olympic ideals, which aim to peacefully unify people and nations connected by song in a fair competition. This idea is supposed to inspire people to experience the power of interaction by singing together. Unrelated to artistic levels, this approach challenges personality and team spirit likewise. The World Choir Games are an international choir festival taking place every two years on different continents.

This idea of the World Choir Games is based on the personal experience of choir singers from all over the world who pick up and pass on human ideals through song. It contributes to people overcoming conflicts and setting, through their social interaction, an example for other people. Music is the common language of the world and serves as a link between cultures and nations.
