WCG – South Africa 2018

In July 2012, the World Choir Games came to the USA for the first time. The World Choir Games (WCGs) is the “Olympics for Choirs.” Held every other year, it is graced the continents of Europe, Asia, and North America. In July 2018, it will grace the African continent for the first time.

The Aeolians of Oakwood University had the opportunity to participate at the 7th WCGs held in Cincinnati. The choir earned gold medals in the three categories that they entered, and the overall championship for the Spiritual category.

In July 2017, the choir was able to tour the United Kingdom and participate in the 70th Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod held in Wales. Once again, the Aeolians demonstrated that they can hold their own against choirs from all over the world by winning the competition and taking home The Pavaroti Trophy.
In July 2018, the Aeolians will be participating in the 10th staging of the WCGs to be held in Tshwane, South Africa

In every country that the Aeolians visit, a mission/civic component is added. The choir truly believes in “giving back” and does so by sharing at K-12 institutions, tertiary institutions, nursing homes, and children homes. They have been known to hold master classes, workshops, and performances with the underserved throughout the countries being visited. What an opportunity this presents to the students. The experience that they gain is life-changing and life-lasting.
We seek your help in supporting the campaign to raise funds to make the dream of “South Africa 2018” for each member of the Aeolians of Oakwood University a reality!!
