- The Mzansi Youth Choir has made South Africans proud by winning big at the first ever Virtual Choir Games
- The event was meant to be held in Belgium but the coronavirus pandemic forced organisers to make it virtual
- Sitting with Briefly.co.za, the choir collectively shared their thoughts on the future of live events after the pandemic
The Mzansi Youth Choir recently emerged victorious at the first ever Interkultur Virtual Choir Games. The event was supposed to be help in Belgium but was made virtual due to the ongoing pandemic.
The choir won top honours in the “choirs with accompaniment” category.
Speaking to Briefly.co.za, the group opened up about the way forward during this Covid-19 pandemic. The choristers have been in lockdown for more than three months.
"We were able to participate in numerous virtual events and we opened new doors that never existed before"
The group believes that there will be live events again but not in the foreseeable future.
"Therefore we need to focus on inventing a new world for the arts, keep artists believing in the artists but most importantly, because everybody suffers, share the suffering, do not wait for others, do not exploit others, but take hands and together build the new world of the arts"
The Mzansi Youth Choir also believe that the world needs healing, peace and self-reflection.
"At Mzansi Youth Choir we will always play our part to bring a smile to someone’s face, sing words of healing, and be a light in a dark world, because we know that one step can start a journey and one song can change a moment"
