Message from the Executive Head

Welcome to the official website of the Drakensberg Boys Choir School. I trust that as you read and look through the site you will get a sense of our wonderful and unique institution. We happen to be the only school of this nature on the African continent, however, the choristers have performed internationally on forty-seven occasions during the school’s existence.

The Drakensberg Boys Choir School is an institution inextricably linked to the World Heritage Site on our doorstep and the students and staff draw inspiration from these surroundings in their daily lives. This is illustrated in their work, play and music that is performed during the calendar year.

The school has three strategic imperatives:

  • Firstly, to reach as many South Africans as possible and bring a sense of hope and happiness to our rainbow nation;
  • Secondly, to continue to build the best choir school in the world;
  • Thirdly, to reach out to our local communities and build bridges through choral music and leadership development.

Join us on this special journey, either by sending your son to a very special place, or just come and enjoy a concert or festival and show your support for a truly South African brand.

Te Deum Laudamus

Andrew Stead
Executive Head
