Choir wants to sing new song

10 August 2017 | Cultural

The Augustineum Secondary School choir has been silent for about two months, the choir has not taken part in any competition held this year due to the fact that there was no conductor and the choir is facing a financial issue. According to the choir coordinator Ms Demas said that the school choir is currently running a fundraising project where it is planning to collect funds to achieve its goals. The main aim is to buy the choir attire for its members and to buy musical instrument that will help with the enhancements of the melodies and the rhythms of the songs.On top of the above the choir is planning to undertake an international tour to Germany next year to participate in the annual concert. She also added that the choir needed contribution to help achieve the goals they have set. “The choir also got a new professional conductor that will be conducting them throughout the year,” says the choir coordinator. The school principal Mr Matengu said the choir should be taken serious and it should be upgraded as soon as possible. “Teachers should take part in all choir activities and they must all contribute as this will give the members courage and strength,” he says.

He also said that he will try by all means to get the school choir a new attire and to get help with funds from sponsors that are willing to help. A choir member, Uzepa said it’s a good thing to invest in a choir as it boosts their courage and makes them proud and strengthen them. He added that the choir is trying hard to raise funds as it will be for the greater good. About meeting time Uzepa said the choir meets every break to polish their new songs and after school to learn new songs and choose songs that they will perform the next day at the assembly point or at certain events. According to the history of the school the choir used to be the best choir of all the Khomas schools. The choir came a long way back and they said they are not going to forget now or never. They said if they get what they want they will make sure that the win every competition they will partake in. The choir sings gospels, traditional and jiva songs. In competitions the choir is given at least two completion songs and they are usually not easy to learn and on top of that the choir will have to add their own three songs. This year the choir only took part in a star for life competition which they did not do well in, they took the last position. They said they are not ashamed nether sad. They said they got stronger and that everyone learn from their mistakes. Isn’t this choir awesome? You should hear this song birds sing, I’m sure you will feel it. When they sing it’s like rain water dripping from a healthy green leaf, you will not want to stop listening to their beautiful voices, they sound great and they are aiming only for the stars.
