The Joubert Singers were invited to sing at the Out of Africa performance held at All Saints’ Church in Hunters Hill on 25 March.
The occasion was a musical salute to African migrants’ contributions to Australia and a Harmony Day initiative.The event was organised by Rotary Hunters Hill in association with a number of local organisations.

The program included a diverse group of traditional African drummers and dancers. The level of skill and energy displayed by them left the audience spellbound.
The Joubert Singers showed their versatility by singing a selection of African songs unaccompanied, all in the original African languages! They finished their performance with ‘Where the Waters Meet’ by local composer Matthew Orlovich.
The performance was sold out, with standing room only; a tribute to the novelty of staging a taste of African culture in suburban Hunters Hill.
