Overview

The Drakensberg Boys Choir School is one of the few South African Schools whose fame extends around the world. This school offers a unique educational opportunity for boys; it stimulates their spirit of adventure and exploration in the physical surroundings of the school while nurturing the development of the mind and expression in innate musical talent. Set on a 100 acre estate, the school draws its inspiration from the idyllic surroundings of the Champagne Valley, Central Drakensberg World Heritage Site in Kwa-Zulu Natal and is filled with the sound of boys singing, surely one of the purest of musical delights in the world. Don't miss our popular Wednesday concerts, at 15h30 every Wednesday afternoon during term time!

The Drakensberg Boys' Choir performed at a conference dinner recently. I have seen the boys perform previously, but really enjoyed their new and extended repertoire and their enthusiasm. One of the must-see jewels of Winterton.

Very talented and well-rehearsed. Also a very good mixture of various genres, with traditional, modern and indigenous songs. And they bring so much energy, you can see that they're having a good time!

In awe at the talent that these boys possess. It is a sight to see people that little generate voices so big. For people like me who are not musically inclined, I thoroughly enjoyed adaptations of familiar favorites. The music performed is quite spread out...More

Wonderful performance. Such dedication from boys and staff. Message regarding rhino poaching very poignant. Well spent afternoon and a tour of the school by the head master before the concert.
