Sing to win

JA-VoicesVoices of Namibia choir members all stood in the FNB Auditorium on Wednesday evening, chatting away when suddenly choir conductor, Ryno Burger brought them to action. In no time, the choir members were organised and began warming up for rehearsals. Just then their voices rose in a strong resonant “OUUUUUU” modulating in response to Burger’s hand signals. But this time around it wasn’t just the choir alone. In their midst were special guests invited to witness the rehearsal session as the choir prepares for the 2012 World Choir Games in Cincinnati, USA which will take place in July. Hon Margaret Mensah-Williams, Khomasdal North constituency councillor and deputy chairperson of the National Council (in front) sings whole-heartedly during the rehearsal. Choir members, Andreas Eichab and Jorginho Rooi, Dr Elijah Ngurare, secretary of SWAPO Party Youth League, Ian Leynaar, CEO of FNB and Voices of Namibia choir conductor, Rayno Burger loved Mensah-Williams’ energy and could not help but join in.The Voices of Namibia is a national choir that sings under the auspices of the Imba Namibia Organisation, in cooperation with the directorate of Arts at the Ministry of Youth, National Service, Sport and Culture.
