The NUST Choir, established in 1996, has been the golden voice of the Institution and an effective marketing tool and is counted among the top choirs in Namibia. It has provided its members with a platform to develop their musical talents, and promote team-building, camaraderie and their professionalism.
In 2009, the choir undertook a similar tour to the south-eastern parts of Namibia, in 2011 to the north-western parts and to the Omaheke Region in 2012 where they made an impact on their audiences.
Choirmaster, Michael Kisting, said the students attracted full houses at all concerts and received standing ovations. “Most importantly, lives have been changed completely, as young people were motivated to undertake further studies, while members of the general public felt encouraged to tackle life with renewed vigour after listening to our messages in song. Our institution’s name became very popular and people have been impressed with its dedication towards its social responsibility,” Kisting said.
