Watch the NMMU choir tonight on Channel 144
The NMMU and Rhodes University choirs will be singing on your television screen tonight in the first Varsity Sing series on kykNET.
Hosted by Marno van der Merwe, Varsity Sing sees South Africa’s top university choirs compete in a knock-out competition over 13 weeks for the title of best university choir.
The Port Elizabeth recordings were held in May at the Feather Market Centre, giving NMMU, Rhodes and Tshwane University of Technology a chance to perform for a spot in the semifinals.
Although the Varsity Sing series started last month, tonight is the first episode with the Eastern Cape choirs, and it is on at 8.30pm on Channel 144.
Next week they also will be on screen in the elimination episode on Thursday.
Each choir performs three songs per episode, covering traditional and new music in three of the official languages.
