A tour highlight was a joint concert with the acclaimed Drakensberg Boys' Choir. While the girls enjoyed performing with these brilliant young men, they enjoyed socializing with them, too! In other moments these thoughtful young women learn of the country's history of apartheid as they meet South Africans from all walks of life. Join us on their transformative journey to the other side of the world.
