Zolani Youth Choir


Zolani Youth Choir is from a small town called Ashton, in the community called Zolani (Western Cape).

The existence of the choir is since 2012 through seeing that there are no cultural activities being offered neither at school nor in the community. The basic idea and purpose of the Choir is to equip members of our community with basic music skills.

The Choir consists of 45 scholars from different schools who are between the ages of 12yrs to 25 years, who have no professional background in formal music, but have proven to have a passion and love for the art. Our first priority is to make the choir a trademark and attraction which will represent Ashton far beyond the region’s borders.

The main objective of the Choir is to demonstrate to scholars and the community at large that if you place your heart, dedication and energy into something, anything can be achieved.

The conductor tries to implement a basic understanding of rules and group dynamics. If members fail to adhere to these, they have to deal with the consequences and in the worst case, are expelled from the Choir. Singing and engaging in Choir teaches the students discipline and morals and helps them to look at the world with a different perspective. Their main goal for the future is to be recognised amongst the best choirs in South Africa, and eventually represent Ashton in particular and South Africa as a whole on overseas tours. The Choir project is meant to serve as an educational tool to help our kids find worth in them.
