Local choirs will on October 10 come together in a bash where the best will ruffle feathers. The organiser of the event Omphemetse Chimbombi said they want to revive choral music and make it popular among Batswana. The event hosted by Artistic Promotions takes place at held at Baobab School Hall. Artistic Promotions is a new promotions company that is aimed at promoting choral music.
Participating choirs are Gaborone Philharmonic Voices, Lesedi Chorus, Andante Chorus and Maikano Serenaders. Chimbombi said they are very passionate about choral. “Artistic Promotions is a local choral music promoter established to develop, nurture, and promote choral music in Botswana,” she said. They intend to concentrate on youth who are vulnerable to social and economic disorders. The activity is the first one for artistic promotions and is expected to raise curtains for more choral activities. Chimbombi said they do have big dreams about the choral music in Botswana because if the organisation succeeds in securing sponsorship it shall host the first Choral Music Awards in Botswana in 2016.
