They will be performing in Darling in a lunch hour concert, 13:00, on 1 July at the Presbyterian Church.

Linden Choir performs an extensive repertoire of music. When they burst into song you can expect anything from Leonard Cohen’s Alleluya to the Gloria of Vivaldi. Favourites from well-known musicals such as Les Misrables, Afrikaans folk songs and ballads and even Bohemian Rhapsody are all regularly included in their concert programmes.

Currently the choir consists of 100 members, of which, astoundingly, more than half are boys! They are in the capable hands of Duncan Fourie, their choirmaster, and are accompanied by Gert Potgieter.

In the past 22 years, the choir has won many prestigious national and provincial awards and also shown their mettle on international platforms. In 2014 they were the only choir to progress to the final round of the National Eisteddfod Association. In 2012 and 2007 Linden Choir won gold and silver medals at international choir competitions in Preveza, Greece and Prague, Chech Republic respectively.

Their musical talent has also been displayed on television programs such as GeraasVilla Rosa and the popular magazine show Pasella.  They have also released 15 CDs, both on their own and in collaboration with various talented names in the musical business.Engr_Linden
