Congratulations in St. PetersburgOur choir is an amateur children's choir consisting of boys and girls from Bloemfontein, South Africa, and surrounding areas, who are between the ages of 8 and 16.

Dr Huibrie Verster founded the choir in 1987 and has been conducting it most successfully ever since. (Click here for her biography.)

Although singing is obviously very important to us, our choir also offers its members - and often their families too - so much more than just a sharing and enjoyment of great voices and music. Our choir is based on the idea that each and every person is special and deserving of love and respect. We strive to give our children not only a rich and diverse education in music but to educate and enrich them by means of cultural experiences and development of essential life skills as well.

Our repertoire is extensive and covers a wide variety of different musical styles and genres. (Click hereto take a look!) We perform many concerts locally and also perform extensively on our tours overseas.

Our choir is privileged to have the renowned accordion player, Nico Carstens, as a permanent member of our family. We have performed with many other famous artists and choirs including Dana Winner, Helmut Lotti, Nataniël, Randall Wickham, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Tapiola Children's Choir. (Click here to see our History and Highlights.)

We have won many local and international awards (click here for more info), have performed on radio and television locally and internationally and have been honoured to perform before three of South Africa's State Presidents, namely De Klerk, Mandela and Mbeki.

The Bloemfontein Children's Choir touches the lives of its members and all whom they come into contact with, leaving positive warm memories to be treasured for years to come.

We're more than just a choir: we're an experience!
