Enriching Lives

“Music is a great blessing. It has the power to elevate and liberate us. It sets people free to dream. It can unite us to sing with one voice. Such is the value of music”
– Nelson Mandela

We are on a journey to enrich lives through music. Our music is drawn from all periods of history, representing many styles from medieval to modern, classical to folk and gospel.  

We are also focused on establishing sustainable Social Impact Programs aimed at improving livelihoods and access to quality healthcare and education.

Our Social Impact activities will include blood donations, medical outreaches, promoting digital education, musical outreaches, and advocacy for environmental protection and poverty eradication.

Influencing Culture

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” – Plato

 Chorale Africa will influence culture ‘by performing music from different cultures and periods at the highest level of artistic excellence.’ Through our music and engagement with the world, we intend to inspire new thinking and appreciation for African musical arts and culture .

Chorale Africa will also be at the forefront of changing perceptions and mindsets about our heritage as Africans and the ‘black’ identity. The choice of ‘Black’ as our primary and dominant colour is our first step in influencing a cultural change of the longheld negative stereotype of the colour ‘black’ especially among Africans.  

Black is the boldest of colours and  our choice of ‘Black’ is a reflection of our bold vision to be the leading choir in Africa!

Building Relationships and Partnerships

We desire to build strong relationships with individuals and institutions throughout Africa and the world. 

The vision of building Africa’s leading choir will be greatly enhanced through strong and supportive partnerships and relationships in the years ahead.

Our partnerships and relationships will enable the institution establish the means to reliably and sustainably finance our operations from internally generated funds in the current year and beyond. 

Our ability to finance all our activities from internally generated funds is critical in our quest to build Africa’s leading choir within the next decade.

We intend to inspire the world through African-themed music and captivating performances featuring masterpieces of choral classics, contemporary works and new compositions.

The choir prepares and performs a wide cross-section of repertoire. Music is drawn from all periods of history, representing many styles from medieval to modern, classical to folk and gospel.
