Saturday, 13 October – Gaborone Youth Singers in Concert, 7pm, P100 (admission) / P150 (VIP)
Gaborone Youth Singers is a non-profit organization, which has been in existence for 20 years. Over the years, the choir has had over 1000 members, consisting of young people below 30 from all over Botswana. Some of our former members are now conductors for school choirs and church choirs.
The choir has been one the most influential choirs in the development and growth of choral music in Botswana. Gaborone Youth Singers has played an ambassadorial role for Botswana choral music as through its activities, forming relationships with other choirs in Lesotho, Swaziland, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
The choir’s existence is premised on diverting the attention of youth from unproductive activities and empowering them by instilling various skills beyond music. Today the choir boasts of members, who are in the process of venturing into business or have set up small businesses with the assistance and guidance of the choir. Two of our former members have been able to form sound businesses in the choral music sphere: one produces the only choral music program on Botswana Television named Melodi Ya Dinnoto, while the other runs a concert logistics and administration company.
