The College of the Arts (COTA) Youth Choir Namibia will stage a World Choir Games Farewell Concert on Friday, 6 July 2018 at the Pionierspark Dutch Reformed Church in Windhoek, starting at 19h00.
The event serves as the farewell concert before they depart for South Africa to participate in the 2018 World Choir Games (WCG) taking place in Tswane, from 10 to 14 July 2018. Bank Windhoek has been one of two main sponsors of this choir as they prepared to participate at this prestigious competition. The World Choir Games takes place every second year on a different continent. This is the first time that it will take place in Africa and is the equivalent of the Olympic Games in Sports.
Together with the Canadian Richmond Youth Honour Choir (RYHC), COTA Youth Choir Namibia promises to entertain and enthral audiences with soothing and rich melodic choral songs from a variety of genres the world over.
“This is the third time this highly acclaimed choir represents Namibia in the World Choir Games and through its successful track record of bringing home gold and silver medals, has established itself as an export product of high. We have witnessed their readiness during rehearsals and we believe that they stand a chance to make us proud,” said Bank Windhoek’s Head of Corporate Affairs, Hayley Allen.
The event will raise additional funds for the trip. Tickets cost N$50 per person and will be available at the door and raffle all be drawn at the end of the evening. Bank Windhoek and Pupkewitz Foundation are the two main sponsors who have financially assisted COTA Youth Choir Namibia as they prepare to take to the world stage.
