World Choir Games visit the UP Museums

Posted on July 19, 2018

The UP Museums played a small, but wonderful role in the World Choir Games that was recently held on the University of Pretoria’s Hatfield Campus, which served as one of the main venues for choir performances and competitions. The Museums widely opened their gallery doors to the many international and local visitors seeking further cultural appreciation of the Arts. Amongst others, the Werningerode Kammerchor, a German Chamber Choir from the City of Werningerode in Germany, thoroughly enjoyed their guided tour of the museum collections on display in both the Old Arts and Old Merensky Buildings. The World Choir Games were hosted by the City of Tshwane from 4 to 14 July 2018 and what should have been be a quiet winter recess, this year the Museums and most certainly the Hatfield Campus was a bustling chorus of visitors from around the world.
