Last year the choir joined the “Light SA Red” protests to highlight the plight of artists as public gatherings and festivals were prohibited due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
According to a statement from the school, the choir had cancelled seven tours and dozens of concerts since the start of the lockdown on March 27.
In a video shared by the school on its Facebook account, the boys asked the public to help “turn on the light” and support the industry, which was crippled by the pandemic.
One of the boys said, “Please help. Let the government understand that we need to perform again.”
