St. Mary’s DSG Choir to join the World Choir Games

During the 10th anniversary event of the Johannes Brahms International Choir Festival and Competition in Wernigerode this year there was one group that always stood out wherever it came: St. Mary’s DSG Choir from South Africa. They colorful costumes, their outstanding joy of life and their catching spirit shone above the whole event – so it’s no wonder that they even were awarded the Audience Prize in the end, selected by Wernigerode residents, tourists and other festival participants.

In 2018, when the 10th World Choir Games are coming to their home country South Africa, they will also be part of it and will bring their winning manner once again to an INTERKULTUR event.



St Mary’s DSG is a private, Anglican girls’ school based in Kloof, near Durban. The school has always prioritized and recognized the value of Music and the Arts. The choir is a vital part of the Music department, and performs regularly in concerts in and around the province of KwaZulu-Natal. The choir is conducted by Head of Music, Mrs Lindy van der Meulen, and accompanied by Primary School Music Specialist, Mrs Heidi Paul.

The choir is highly experienced in competing in competitions and already gained great results in choir competitions also abroad. The group always takes a great message with it: “We believe in the power of music to deepen and enrich the life of each choir member, and we also relish the opportunity to collaborate with, and learn from other choirs. It is often these collaborations, spontaneous and planned, which form the highlight of each successful choral year.” Thus, the choir travels, sings and just can’t get enough!

Hopefully their participation in the 10th World Choir Games 2018 will be a journey full of musical inspiration for the group!

Registration for the World Choir Games 2018 is still open until December 1. If you want to join St. Mary’s DSG Choir at the event, check out for detailed information on your participation and registration.
