Choir Action

The Joubert Singers showed their versatility by singing a selection of African songs unaccompanied, all in the original African languages! They finished their performance with ‘Where the Waters Meet’ by local composer Matthew Orlovich.

The performance was sold out, with standing room only; a tribute to the novelty of staging a taste of African culture in suburban Hunters Hill.
