The 2013 Manda Wilderness Choir Festival
The Manda Wilderness Choir Festival, put on every year by the Manda Wilderness Community Trust, is an annual event which brings the 16 communities of the Manda Wilderness region together. Twelve choirs comprising 20 enthusiastic Nyanja voices each compete for first, second and third prizes in an evening of joyful celebration. The festival is a night of great anticipation and excitement with each choir receiving an opportunity to receive choir training prior to the start of the festival. The vibrant voices of the choirs display their hours of training and practice and visitors come on foot, public transport and boat from as far away as 50 kilometers. After enjoying the sounds of the 12 choirs intone their best pieces, the competition wraps up with a triumphant mass choir piece with all the choirs singing together in unity.
The Manda Wilderness Community Trust is seeking funding to deliver musical training and organize a choir festival to share the joy of music across 16 Nyanja villages. Please do your part to make the 2013 Manda Wilderness Choir Festival, an event that means so much to the Manda Wilderness communities, a day of celebration and unity and an occasion to remember for years to come.
