Chitungwiza Harmony Singers to represent Zimbabwe in a prestigious Competition…
We are on the verge of yet another great ending to a wonderful year with the Choir. In a few days from now, The CHS 80 member vocal group will travel to South Africa to take part in the much anticipated Old Mutual National Choir Festival 40th Anniversary Finals.
The venue is Ellis Park Arena Johannesburg, the media has written about it, the stage has literally been set! It is the big calm before the vocal and classical storm in Gauteng and social media is awash with happy and excited choristers from all over in full support of their choirs. We should too!
For as long as I have been a classical enthusiast, only #CHS has raised the flag for #ZImbabwe, which is not largely regarded, musically, compared to our southern counterparts. But in all adversities and inferiority complexes, CHS has proved to excel even further. It has done the unthinkable many a times and I reckon its about time ZImbabwe recognizes far more than what we do now, the feats this choir has accomplished! Anyone who attends the preliminary rounds for these competitions will tell you, it’s not a walk in the park. But year after year the #ChitungwizaHarmonySingers sing their hearts out to attend the finals and be crowned as one of the best choir in Southern Africa. This year, could be their year.
I am excited! ecstatic and ready to see them perform as they have been doing nothing but practice for the final show down penciled for the weekend.
Join the choir and support them on 9 & 10 December, Ellis Park Arena .
