The Highveld Ridge Youth Choir obtained a second place for their performance in Bratislava, Slovakia in 2015.
This choir left for Europe on Monday, 3 July and they will return on 19 July.
They will perform at several concerts in Italy, Austria and Germany.
This choir performed at the Rondekerk on Friday evening (30 June) to spoil the parents and also to have a last practice session together before leaving for Italy, the first country on their tour.
The choir consists of members from Secunda, Evander, Kinross, Trichardt and Kriel, and are mainly high school pupils and a few adults.
Trinka Combrinck formed the choir in 1995 and they have been on seven tours since 2002.
About 40 members will go on this year’s tour and they are ready to bring home more prizes.
Trinka thanked all the choir’s sponsors and in particular Hydra Arc and Sasol.
She also thanked all the parents and people helping to make this tour possible.
“God told me in this week to just believe and everything will fall into place with the tour,” said Trinka.
