It came as no surprise that the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) Choir outshone its competitors in the South African Tertiary Institutions Choral Association (SATICA) of 2014.
The UKZN Choir participated in a seven day competition that was held at the University of Fort Hare in the Eastern Cape. Other universities in the group included the University of Fort Hare, University of Western Cape, University of Limpopo, Vaal University of Technology, Tshwane University of Technology, and Mangosuthu University of Technology.
The competition was tough, but the UKZN Choir was victorious and beat all these competitive universities with its vocal prowess. The Choir was exposed to various talents from other universities from which a lot was learnt.
The phenomenal performance of the UKZN Choir was as follows:
- Under the Standard Category the UKZN Choir was crowned National Champions of SATICA and was awarded the Gold trophy (1st prize) for African and Western Piece.
- The Choir won the Glass trophy for being an outstanding choir in terms of the overall performance.
- The Choir further won a Medal for the Quintet performance and for best Conductor.
Funding for the Choir was made possible through the Student Co-curricular Fee which is administered by the Student Services Division. The Choir continues to fly the UKZN flag high!
