Introduction

Welcome to the online Home of the Stellenberg Girls Choir (Stellenberg Meisiekoor) in Durbanville, South Africa.

SMK has been awarded the title as overall winners in the category of more experienced choirs for the 16th time in the prestigious ATKV Applous choir competition during August 2015.

They are currently ranked 12th on the Interkultur World Ranking of 1000 international choirs.

NUUSFLITS

3 x Wenners!

Die Stellenberg Meisiekoor onder leiding van André van der Merwe is Saterdag, 8 Augustus 2015 vir die 16de keer met 92,08% as die algehele wenner van die Nasionale ATKV-Applouskompetisie in die Veremarksaal in Port Elizabeth aangewys. SMK verower ook die toekenning vir die beste vertolking van ‘n Afrika-lied en die beste vertolking van ‘n voorgeskrewe lied.

Hulle het die gehoor op ‘n geestelike reis meegevoer met hul briljante vertolking van Hoe groot is U (Carl Boberg). Verwerk deur S. Robson en aangepas deur André van der Merwe, twee Afrika -gebede: Baba Soni ngani en Hlonolafatsa  onderskeidelik tradisionele Zoeloe- en Sotho- liedere verwerk deur André van der Merwe en die aangrypende voorgeskrewe werk Psalm 8 deur Chris Lambrecht in die kategorie - Meer Ervare Meisieskore. 

Die metaforiese uitbeelding van ‘n kruik wat gebalanseer word, is ‘n manjifieke musikale en visuele uitvoering van Chua-Ay - ‘n Filippynse volksliedjie verwerk deur Fidel Cadalang. Hierdie sterk boodskap dat balans in ons daaglikse bestaan ‘n kernvoorwaarde vir geluk en vrede is, word onuitwisbaar deel van die mens wat daarna kyk, daarna luister en dit sy eie maak.  

Another Win

On Friday 4 September SMK performed at the Gala Evening of the Tygerberg International Eisteddfod in the Endler in Stellenbosch. They were announced as the winners in the Youth Choir Category as well as the overall winner for 2015 with an average of 97%. The school as well as the community are very proud of the SMK's performance in 2015. We are blessed not only with choir members with exceptional voices, but also choir members with dedication and motivation. Above all, the school is blessed to have André van der Merwe as choir leader.
