The main event that the Dr Beyers Naude Local Municipality will be holding to celebrate Heritage Day this year will be a Clash of the Choirs in Aberdeen on Saturday 30th September.
The event will be held at the Aberdeen Library Hall, starting at 10am. Choirs from all areas in the DBNLM are welcome to participate, and as many as possible will be contacted by the municipality with a formal invitation.
There will be three categories: community-based choirs; church choirs; and school choirs, which will be further divided into primary schools and secondary schools. The theme is “The Year of OR Tambo: Celebrating South Africa’s living human treasures and legends”, and choirs are encouraged, if possible, to choose songs to reflect this.
Registration should be made with Lucricia Jackson, Special Projects Unit Co-ordinator, by email to firstname.lastname@example.orgemail@example.com , fax to 0865008781 / 0498922166, or phone 0498075908 or 0735537935/0766524333.
Entries close on Wednesday 20th September at 4pm. No late entries will be able to be accommodated, due to transport and catering arrangements.
