The admission process at the Drakensberg Boys Choir School is twofold: the boy must first undergo a voice audition conducted by a music staff member or an appointed talent scout of the DBCS. If the boy passes his voice audition, his latest academic school report should be sent to DBCS for assessment by the Head of Academics. Boys need to be above average academically in order to keep up with the demanding requirements at DBCS. It is necessary for prospective new boys to attend an Open Weekend prior to joining DBCS. It is at these Open Weekends that parent information sessions are held, boys experience a night in boarding, undergo further voice and academic evaluations, and also get the opportunity to join the main choir on stage. It is an exciting weekend, structured to assist both parents and boys to make a fully informed choice as to whether DBCS is the correct school for them. Once all criteria are met, an official congratulatory letter of acceptance from the Headmaster of the DBCS is sent to the parents. It will then be up to the parents to accept or decline the offer to be part of this world-famous choir.
