The Clermont Community Choir emanates from the Clermont Catholic Church Choir and was founded in 1992. The choir is specialising in a variety of music styles - choral, opera, classical and African indigenous music. The choir has in the past year broken new ground by collaborating in a number of performances with the Dunamis Gospel Group (with Phelelani Mnomiya).
The choir was crowned national champions in the standard category of the prestigious Old Mutual National Choir Festival in December 2009 and defended their championship status in 2010. The choir achieved second position at the same competition in 2007 and has also excelled in various national and provincial music competitions over the period 2003-2008. These include the Arts, Culture and Tourism Choral Eisteddfod, South African Post Office, KZN Premier Choral Competitions and Imvunge Choral Music Eisteddfod. The Clermont Community choir has in recent years also staged a number of performances particularly with the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra. These include the Loeries International Advertising Awards, Celebrate Durban Concert, Beethoven’s 9th Symphony at the KZNPO’s 25th Anniversary, Sibisi’s Zulu Mass in B flat, Mnomiya’s Zizi Lethu Themba Lethu, and the 2010 FIFA World Cup International media briefing at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban. The Clermont Community Choir released a commercial CD in 2005 titled Woza Nkosi Yethu and in 2009 released a second CD and DVD recorded at a 15th Anniversary Celebration concert in 2007. It recently launched its Fan Club in October.
