Keystone State Boychoir returns to South Africa

July 6 - July 28, 2011

Celebrating its 10th Anniversary, Keystone State Boychoir (KSB) is embarking on a three-week concert tour in South Africa. Having toured South Africa in its first season, KSB is returning to the country with the distinction of being the only choir to have sung on all seven continents, including Antarctica.

This “Happy Birthday, Madiba!” Concert Tour* will honor through song and community service the great Nelson Mandela. Mandela has asked that, on his birthday (July 18th), his fellow South Africans perform 67 minutes of community service, rather than simply take a day off. The 67 minutes represents the number of years he spent fighting apartheid. KSB has decided to travel to South Africa during the hero’s birthday month, and honor his request in every city they visit.

Steven Fisher, Associate Music Director, says: “Nelson Mandela is one of the few, true heroes alive today. It’s important that the boys know who he is, and what he stands for. He stood up for South Africans and in doing so, stood up for us all. ”

The itinerary includes Kimberley, Drakensberg, Kruger National Park, Pretoria, Johannesburg, Soweto, Cape Town, and Rodebosch. The Boychoir will be hosted by the St. Cyprian’s Grammar School, Kimberley Children’s Choir, Drakensberg Boys’ Choir, Jakaranda Kinderkoor, Tyberberg Kinderkoor, and the Rodebosch Boys’ Preparatory School.

* Madiba is a title of respect for Nelson Mandela, deriving from his Xhosa clan name.
