Once again, Free State voices rang top at the competition level choral music festival. “We are very proud of these vibrant youngsters who sang their hearts out for CUT,” says Dr Dicks Nkonoane, deputy campus manager and long-time champion of the choir.

The Choir swept all the stakes at the Gauteng Choral Music Association (GACMA) Choral Eisteddfod recently hosted in Pretoria to emerge as the overall winners in the Silver Category. These homegrown melodious voices, with an impeccable tonal quality, navigated the quarter notes and chromatics of the following prescribed songs with unrivalled ease. Their songs were SENQU, The Orange River (composed by Joshua Pulumo(JP)Mohapeloa), and  Listen to the Lambs (a 1914 composition by R Nathaniel Dett).

The choir is conducted by Mrs Maggie Henson-Teisi, a full-time staff member who selflessly gives of her own time and energy not only to lead the choir, but also fulfil the role of a prolific pianist.
