The Ndlovu Youth Choir headlined this year’s Sounds of Celebration concert.
The Ndlovu Youth Choir headlined alongside other distinguished acts from around the world such as the Pipes and Drums of Queen Victoria School from Scotland, Vienna Boys Choir from Austria, and American violinist and composer, Michael Levine.
The ninth installment of the Education Africa virtual concert, kicked off yesterday in Johanessburg under the theme, That’s Life! This showcase brings to the fore talents from South Africa who have the opportunity to collaborate with other performers from across the globe – fostering a sense of social cohesiveness and community.
Joan Lithgow, Musical Director and Education Africa Marimba Specialist said, “We are extremely excited to have our newly formed Alumni Marimba Band performing with the legendary award-winning duo: Pops Mohamed and Dave Reynolds”.
“Staging the celebratory concert in the month of June is no coincidence”, adds Lithgow. June 16th is Youth Day – a historically significant day in the history of South Africa, and a great deal of focus shifts to the youth at this time as South Africans celebrate and reflect on their contribution to freedom for all in South Africa.
The Concert was be co-hosted by the co-host of the CBS Saturday Morning show, Michelle Miller.
