MZANSI YOUTH CHOIR
Mzansi Youth Choir was founded in July 2003 to provide talented and underprivileged teens and young adults (14-24) with the opportunity to perform professionally locally and internationally. The choir is made up of 45 choristers who hail from Soweto, Johannesburg and surrounding areas.
Mzansi, which means “south,” in isiZulu, is also the township slang term for South Africa. The repertoire of the choir includes elements of traditional, pop, and jazz music.
