KHS participated in the 3rd annual South Cape Sports Tours "Cantamus!" National Schools' Choir Festival, in collaboration with the South Cape Music Academy and George Municipality from 10 – 13 August.

The competition featured fifteen prominent school choirs from as far afield as Pretoria, Kempton Park, Cape Town, Stellenbosch, the Northern Cape and North-West Province. They participated in 3 different categories for primary schools, high schools, mixed and high schools girls/boys' choirs.

The opening ceremony took place on Thursday 10 August in the evening at the Civic Centre in George. Choirs participated in a flag ceremony and each choir had the opportunity to introduce themselves.

KHS Chorale performed at the prestigious concert with the acclaimed South Cape Children's Choir at the Denneoord Dutch Reformed Church on Friday night.

In between all of this, the choir attended a workshop, did a sound check in the competition venue, took photographs and rehearsed for their performance at their hotel, which was conveniently next to the seaside – spontaneous visits were the order of the day.

Adjudication of the choirs took place on the Saturday at the Civic Centre. The Laureate Prizegiving Concert followed in the evening. KHS came 4th in their category.
