André van der Merwe has been the choir master since 2003. The choir is currently ranked as the number 1 amateur choir in the world. At the World Choir Games, in Latvia, in 2014 the choir won all three of their competition categories, achieving the highest mark in the history of the competition with 99%. In 2016 the choir again won all three of their competition categories, achieving the highest mark of the competition with 96% at World Choir Games in Russia. In 2016 the choir was also crowned audience and overall winner in the first Varsity Sing! Competition.

Die koor is ook verlede jaar aangewys as algehele wenner van Varsity Sing asook as die kykers- gunsteling. Vir hierdie uitvoering sing die koor gewyde werke, asook gunstelinge van o.a. Die Heuwels Fantasties en Tracy Chapman
