About Us

Our Story


To uplift means to improve a person’s spiritual, cultural, social, moral and intellectual condition. Uplift Choirs (youth choir and adult choir)originate from a passion for people and music, especially the distinctive ability that collaborative singing has to change the lives of participants for the better. We want to provide the opportunity for young people and adults to develop their musical gifts and to become influencers in various communities in and around the Helderberg basin and even beyond. We aim to provide opportunities to all interested and deserving young people and adults irrespective of their social and economic background.


There are two distinctive choir offerings: one for the youth and one for adults from the Helderberg Basin. The youth choir currently consists of young people between the age of 13 and 18 and both choirs are representative of the diversity and talent from all the schools in the Helderberg basin. We draw on music from South Africa and around the world, including elements of traditional, jazz, gospel, spiritual, pop and folk music.


While enjoyment is key, a high standard of performance is strived for. This can only be achieved through the cultivation of strong friendship bonds, respect for one another and nurturing a spirit of collaboration and team work.


Uplift Choir strives to uplift and empower the surrounding communities through singing and beautiful music-making. Through presenting programmes with positive messages, we want to uplift the spiritual, social, moral and intellectual condition of every person we encounter. We want to bridge barriers, be peacemakers and bring healing where ever we go.
