The Lads

I knew Linda would enjoy the surprise of an afternoon performance.  So when we arrived in the shadow of the Drakensberg Mountains where the Drakensberg Boys School is located, I asked if she would like a special birthday present.  Our bed and breakfast was just down the road a bit from their concert hall on the campus.  We went straight to the box office before checking into our home for the next four days.  Eland roam freely around the slopes…no reported Lions.

During Intermission a small contingent of the 96 boys on stage entertain while the guests have afternoon tea and CD sales can be made.  The lad in the hat is leading them in song.  Of note is his baton.

Listening to these boys sing while I write brings tears to the eyes.  The lady is happy too!  October 8, 2010 in South Africa.
