he Department of Basic Education in partnership with the Motsepe Foundation will host the 2019 edition of the ABC Motsepe South Africa School Choir Eisteddfod (SASCE) National Championships from Tuesday 25 – Friday 28 June 2019 at the Rhema Bible Church in Randburg, Johannesburg.
The year 2019 marks the year in which South Africa celebrates 25 years of democracy. It is also a year in which we, as a people, reflect on the past, its challenges and successes and the strides we have made, as a country, in advancing and redressing the injustices of the past but also, looking forward into the future. The theme for this years’ edition is “Celebrating 25 years of our Democracy”.
The Motsepe Foundation partnered with the DBE to shine a greater spotlight on the sporting and artistic talents of the youth, for national unity and pride, and preserve our musical and cultural heritage. In continuing our support for education, the programmes stimulate passion and dedication amongst learners who will become the leaders of tomorrow.
The Department values this programme as it resonates well with Government’s vision to improve the quality of life for all citizens, free the potential of each person and build a united and democratic country. Music, like all other forms of cultural expression, is an important weapon of education. Learners will compete under various categories that includes Solo Soprano, Mezzo Soprano, Solo Tenor, Solo Bass, Duet, Small ensemble.
