Serowe Symphony keeps youth busy

| September 3, 2015

Serowe Symphony- a Serowe -based choral choir, will this weekend host a choral music festival in Swaneng Hill Senior School. The choir was founded by Leremela Bushi Bogosing, a lecturer at Molepolole College of Education, together with the completing class of Swaneng Hill School in 1998.

Bogosing has since been the leader of the choir to date. The choir was formed in an attempt to keep young people busy with activities that will in future improve their lives as opposed to being actively involved in alcohol and drug abuse as well as other social ills.

In an interview recently, the vice chairperson of the choir Comtech Kekgabile said their objective is to help young people grow in talent and in the music industry. He said they do that by helping school choirs in preparation for their competitions or helping any other person interested in music.

He further explained that the choir does not only accept those talented in music for membership but any other youth can register to be a member of the fun-filled and life -improving choir.

Kekgabile also stated that they are not necessarily a profit making organization but they want to keep young people out of the street. Little incentives however, he said will do no harm. He further stated that they were intending to move around in places outside Serowe where they will hold workshops and mentor young people, all in the name of talent development and nurturing.

The self-sponsored choir comprising of more than 70 members is looking forward to recording their first album with the help of Ministry of Youth, Sport and Culture.

According to Kekgabile , the choir has in a number of occasions taken part in Old Mutual Choral music competitions in South Africa.

Serowe Symphony also this year got a place in the President’s day competitions where they scooped position 2 and won an amount of P22 500. Kekgabile said this was after they obtained position 1 at regional level
