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 106 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.
