South Africa’s top choirs that will do musical battle on stage include Voices of the Nation, Gauteng Choristers, Kopano Chorus, Mathews Singers, Transnet Port Terminal Choir, Belcanto Voices, Heavenly Voices, SA Singers, Clermont Community Choir and African Chorus.

The audience will have an opportunity to vote for the choir of their choice and MTN will provide a number on the day to be used for voting.  Auditors will be there to count the votes. The choir with most votes will also win an OR Tambo Award.

The Big Top Arena  is expected to have choral and classical music audience members from Swaziland, Mozambique, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia and plenty of local choral music lovers.

To add more flavour to this entertainment there will be Afro Tenors, Cenastra Male Choir, Tembisa High School, Injula Yomculo Choir, Fumana High School and Mbizana Village School Choir to bring more excitement to this event.

Tickets are selling from R180 and can be purchased at Computicket.
