Welcome to Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in the beautiful coastal city of
Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape, and George in the Southern Cape.
20-year choir reunion weekend
Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University’s choir will be gathering at the university this weekend to celebrate 20 years of singing success.
As part of the reunion weekend, choir members past and present will also give a performance at the Dutch Reformed Church, Summerstrand, at 6pm, on Saturday, 6 September.
The university’s vocal ambassadors have spread the NMMU brand throughout the globe as a multi-cultural, award-winning choir. Only last month did they perform to standing ovations at the 12th International Choral Festival in Beijing, China - one of innumerable overseas tours for the 50-member choir in the past two decades.
The choir made history in 1994 as one of the first multi-racial choirs in South Africa, and the first at a university – in this case, the former University of Port Elizabeth.
That multi-cultural flavour continues today not only in the diversity of its members, but in its extensive repertoire.
Tickets are R70 or R50 for students and pensioners available from the NMMU Shop or EFT deposits with name and surname as a reference: NMMU Alumni, Standard Bank, 080292321.
In the meantime, why not take the choir goose bump test? http://ow.ly/AY70w
