Description:

The Drakensberg Boys Choir School is one of the few South African Schools...

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!

We were recently spending a quiet week with our SA friends at the Champagne Sports Resort. They suggested we attend the weekly concert put on by the Drakensberg Boys Choir. We were not disappointed. It was a chance to listen to musical offerings of a group of very talented youths. It was obvious that these boys work very hard to... More

What an extraordinary experience it is to attend one of the weekly concerts at the school of the Drakensberg Boys Choir! It is so much more than just an outstanding choir offering a wonderful range of music. With all the negativity floating around these days due to political and economic uncertainties it was for me a glimpse into a South... More

We were spending a few days at Champagne Castle resort and had a "free" afternoon. As it happened, the one afternoon per week (a Wednesday if memory serves me correctly) the Drakies have a performance open to the public, so we decided we had to take the opportunity. We did not plan to do this before going on our trip,... More

My wife and I were in the area for some hiking in Monk's Cowl. Our host suggested checking out the Drakensburg Boys Choir Wednesday afternoon performance after our hike. With nothing better to do, we decided to attend. The afternoon performance was about an hour and fourth five minutes. The first half was Christmas music and the second half featured... More

I lived in SA till I was 21 and knew the Drakensberg Boys Choir were fantastic but never had the opportunity to see them. I am now 40 and went to see them and they were better than I ever expected. If you are ever in the drakensberg you have to make a point to see them. They were outstanding
