The South African Youth Choir is one of the most exciting choral projects in the world today. It brings together exceptionally talented young singers from all over our beautiful and diverse country, giving them the opportunity to excel on artistic and scholastic level in the undisputed hub of South African choral singing today – the Northern Suburbs of beautiful Cape Town. To become part of SAYC is only possible for a select few, and successful candidates are very fortunate indeed.
Since 2005 this fabulous choir, accommodated at the Durbanville High School Hostel, has been developed into a unique musical product of international standard and won a gold diploma at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod in Wales in 2006. International media hailed the choir as a true export product of South Africa.
The choir members are committed to artistic excellence. Many members come from disadvantaged areas and are orphans. They are the raw talent of South Africa. The choir offers them a voice and hope. They dare to dream.
