The Wits Choir

The Wits Choir has spread the magic of South African music and culture through tours worldwide.

The Wits Choir has been under the direction of accomplished Conductor and Trainer, Dalene Hoogenhout, since 1995. Dalene lectures part-time in the Music Department at the Wits School of the Arts, and has often been invited to adjudicate at choir festivals and competitions, present workshops and master classes, and has conducted many massed choirs as guest conductor. She compiles, presents and produces a weekly radio programme called The Choir Adventure on Radio Today, where she exposes listeners to a wide variety of choral music to foster an interest in this genre.

The Wits Choir has a large fan base and has performed by invitation at many official functions, including all important Wits University ceremonies, graduations and inaugurations. Highlights for the members have included:
