MMCC PLEADS FOR SUPPORT
MBABANE Methodist Church Choir is appealing for financial support for their trip to the finals of the Methodist Church Choral Music finals to be held in Bloemfotein on October 8.
This was revealed by the choir's publicist Vusi Dlamini who said having won at the district level and now proceeding to the finals means the choir stands a good chance to win in the finals. He was quick to mention that the finals are always tricky stating that there are a lot of string choirs from the SADC region.
He said that does not however mean they will easily give in. He said the choir has vast experience and depth when it comes to quality of singers stating that they will put up a good fight to earn the first spot and take the Germany tour which is the first prize.
Dlamini said all that will be possible if the nation will support them. "At this stage we need a lot of support hence we appeal to companies and all choral music lovers to join had s and assist the choir.
“We need finances to assist us with transport and lodging needs since this is a long trip that will require that we accommodate the choristers" he said.
He noted that they will also need technical support as they prepare the choir for finals stating that all those require serious funds. "We need professional pianists and coaches to assist us in our preparations and those services do not come cheap. We appeal to the nation to assist as we seek to continue lifting the country's flag out there.
Those willing to assist can contact me on 7603 0630” he said.
Asked if they have any other plans to host a fundraiser, Dlamini said they are under immense pressure as a result of the daily rehearsals hence they could not engage in any other activities until the competition.
The choir is no stranger in competing on such big stages as they have represented the country at the Old Mutual National Choir Festival several times. Although they did not make the top three in the recent competition they managed to prepare well and beat the choirs in the Methodist competitions.
