MUSICAL HONOUR: Junita van Dijk will help to organise an international choral festival in Spain

Mandela Metropolitan University choir director Junita van Dijk has been honoured internationally.

The long-serving choral conductor, whose choir has already won innumerable international awards, is to serve on the International Federation for Choral Music (IFCM) to select participants for the next World Choral Symposium in Spain in 2017.

Junita says she’s very honoured to have been nominated by the federation’s executive committee and gladly accepted the invitation. She is one of only three conductors chosen from around the world.

“This is definitely the highlight of my choir career to achieve acknowledgement of this kind,” said an elated Junita. But she was well aware of the great responsibility that lay ahead.
