About
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!

I am an old boy of the Drakensberg Boys Choir School. It is and will be the best concert of choristers you will ever watch. The school goes from grade 4 to grade 9. It is an old boys school. The boys are very friendly and respectful. These boys came from no experience to fully trained professionals. They are very good singers and recommend everyone to go and listen to their beautiful voices.

Enjoy the universal language of music and song with a goosebump experience, by treating yourself with a Wednesday afternoon concert by the Drakies within walking distance of Dragon Peaks Mountain resort. Just the joy on their faces and the enjoyment in the performance alone, will fill your heart and soul with beauty and pleasure.... not even to mention the music and song!!!

If you are in the Central Drakensberg near Dragon's Peak on a Wednesday afternoon ,you have to spoil yourself with the incredible sounds of the Drakensberg Boys Choir! They are superb, leaving you with goosebump memorable moments through the power of music.
This is such a treat. Tickets easily available on Webtickets or at the school office.
Don't miss out!

We were hoping to attend a Wednesday afternoon session with the boys but unfortunately they were away on tour in Namibia. Nonetheless the visit to the school was very special, set in the Drakensberg the surrounding area was a special treat.

We were lucky here – the website offered no performance the weekend we were staying in the Valley – just by chance on our way to Dragon Peaks we passed the entrance and the sign announced a performance that evening – it turned out to be a special show at the end of parents week which accounted for a very enthusiastic audience - a chance not to be missed – sensational is the only way to describe our evening – the boys excelled themselves with a traditional first half and a resounding second half Shosholoza a 40 minute themed performance full of colour, drums and of course great singing – don’t miss it in fact plan your trip here around a concert

Every South African should visit the Drakensberg Boys Choir School and attend one of their concerts. The boys are remarkable in all respects. Their singing and musical talents are exceptional. The staff are brilliant in educating these boys and providing them with this wonderful platform to follow their talents and dreams. Their amazing performance will be remembered for a very long time. Support them, you’ll be glad you did.

The sound of heaven is something to behold, but beyond their beautiful voices is the absolute joy that each of these boys have for what they do. The passion and 100% commitment is etched in their joyful smiles and expressive faces. What a joy it is to see and hear them sing from their hearts.
