The only junior regional choir in the country, the Eastern Cape junior Children’s Choir (ECjCC) under leadership of Hanlie Young, will be holding auditions on Friday 1 November at Charlo Primary School. This is an opportunity for talented singers who will be in Grade 1, 2, 3 or 4 in 2014, to join the choir.
The ECjCC rehearses once a week, on Wednesdays, from 16h00 – 17h30, at Cillié High School. Performances are mainly scheduled for weekends, but depending on the event, some may be scheduled for weekdays.
Children planning to audition on 1 November must contact Blanché at 082 657 1701 as soon as possible in order to book their individual audition times. They are also welcome to send an email to
Prospective choir members may sing any song they like at the audition. No sheet music or special equipment is required.
The Eastern Cape junior Children’s Choir annually presents the Bamba Festival. Junior school choirs are invited to take part and to join in the fun. (Bamba, the official choir teddy bear, who is actually responsible for the Bamba Festival, can’t wait to hear the lovely new voices at the auditions. Prospective choir members are invited to bring their own teddies along to meet Bamba.)
Apart from several remaining performances towards the end of the year, the ECjCC is planning to record a DVD with singer Anthonie Bougas. It should be ready in time for Christmas.
