Carmina Audite’ – Listen To Our Songs!

As one of South Africa’s foremost amateur regional children’s choirs, the members are carefully auditioned and selected from several primary and secondary schools in George, Knysna, Oudtshoorn and Mossel Bay.  They are dedicated to being ambassadors of music!

Their singing is vibrant, clear and stirring, with a musical discipline extending far beyond their ages. Their choral sound is unique!

Since the founding in 1996, they have received critical acclaim from a wide range of choral specialists and practitioners, from as far afield as Finland, Germany, Belgium, Russia, Canada and the USA.
