MBABANE – As the SwaziBank Schools Choral Music Competition grows and becomes more influential to pupils, the concept is also becoming more expensive.

This year, the Swaziland Schools Choral Music Association (SSCMA) has a budget of over E800 000 for the competition.  The competition, which is specifically for pupils, is sponsored by SwaziBank and is expected to start next month.

The committee led by Khonelikhosi Dlamini is busy finalising its budget which has so far amounted to over E800 000. Some of the competition’s expenses include venues where the competitions are held, payment of adjudicators, payment of pianists, transport, prize monies and food. 

These are among the expenses that the competition comes with. The competition finals are normally held in June at the University of Swaziland’s Sports Emporium.  Dlamini confirmed the budget, saying for them it is all about improving the competition each and every year.

“The competition is growing and we can see that it is becoming bigger  and better every year. Even this year, we are looking at a fantastic choral showcase,” he said. 
He said the competition has played a  huge role in unearthing  talent from  pupils who were not even  aware of their own singing capabilities. “We would like to thank SwaziBank for believing in us.  Had it not been for their support, we would not be where we are today,” he said.

He urged all choral music lovers to make sure they do not miss this year’s edition. Last year over 60 schools participated in the competition which saw its finals being attended by the Prime Minister Sibusiso Barnabas Dlamini.
