Education Minister Naledi Pandor has congratulated the Tirisano Youth Choir for bringing home two silver medals after competing in the 2004 Bremen Choir Olympics in Bremen, Germany. The minister cheered them during their arrival at the Johannesburg International Airport last night.

The choir won the medals in the Mixed Youth Choir and Folklore A Cappella categories. "Over 300 choirs from 75 countries have participated in this year's competition," said spokesperson Molatwane Likhethe. The Tirisano Youth Choir comprises 150 singers from various schools from all the nine provinces. "We congratulate all who are associated with our choir especially our talented young people and the hard working team of officials of the Education Department who have been working closely with the choir," Minister Pandor said.
