Tygerberg City Choir History

Sanlam Koor

A choir for Sanlam staff was established in June 1973, but after a few performances in 1977 ceased to exist due to a shortage of male voices.

As a result of this initiative, a new choir was established with Sanlam as sponsor. At the end of 1985, Sanlam withdrew their sponsorship.

Stadskoor – Civic Choir Bellville

Thanks to the vision of a senior person at Sanlam, whose name is unfortunately unknown to us, it was decided that the company should become more involved in cultural affairs.


Mecer Stadskoor Tygerberg:

In time the City of Tygerberg also withdrew its sponsorship and Tommie Snyman (still a choir member) with the help of Tina Nel, began to arrange annual golf days to strengthen the finances.

In this process, Mecer became involved in sponsorship and for a time the choir was known as Mecer City Choir Tygerberg, until the sponsorship was withdrawn.

In 2018, the choir changed their name back to Stadskoor Tygerberg and added City Choir to their name to reflect the bilingualism of the choir.
