The Stellenberg Girls Choir

  • (Stellenberg Meisiekoor - SMK) located in Durbanville, South Africa.

Introduction

The choir consists of over 100+ young ladies from Grade 8 to Grade 12 from the Stellenberg High School, with a deep, soulful passion for music and the voice of angels, hence fondly referred to as the “Stellies Angels”.

Their ability to produce amazing music under the directorship of the talented and highly acclaimed Andre van der Merwe has seen them be awarded an array of national and international titles.

Until August 2016 they were the national category winners of more experienced choirs for the 17th time in the prestigious ATKV Applous.  They did not compete in the 2017 ATKV Applous, due to their participation in the international Interkultuur choir competition in Wernigerode in July 2017, in which they were awarded a category win, a 2nd place and then took overall winners.

SMK are currently ranked 5th on the Interkultur World Ranking for Youth Choirs and 18th of 1000 international choirs.
