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 our beautiful surroundings, while nurturing the development of the mind and expression in innate musical talent. Set on a 100Ha estate, the school draws its inspiration from the majestic Drakensberg Mountains, a World Heritage Site in KwaZulu-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 during term time!

Attended the Wednesday show, and was moved to tears. The boys are so polite and their voices move one to tears. The show was vibrant and full of cultural significance. Wow!

What an experience wouldn’t have missed it for anything. We were lucky booked for a normal performance and was told there was an internal competition the next day so we went to that too. The boys are as good as professionals loved it.
