Curlitzia and Vividus Men both claimed the title of Serenade National champions in the women’s and men’s division respectively on Saturday. Curlitzia and Vividus Men represented UP as winners of the university’s leg of the national competition.
This year’s finalists comprised of the ladies and men Serenade winners from UP, the University of Johannesburg (UJ), the University of the Free State (Kovsies), North-West University (Pukke) and Stellenbosch University (Maties).
Curlitzia have represented Tuks at nationals for the past three years but their car guard theme and refined harmonies managed to secure them the win this year. Soetdoring from Kovsies placed second and Francie van Zijl from Maties placed third.
Vividus Men presented a performance titled “Bohemian Melody” and beat out Dromedaris from UJ and Caput from Pukke, who claimed second and third places respectively.
Vividus Men were also announced as the overall winners of the competition and will receive R10 000 prize money. This year’s nationals were hosted by UJ and are organised annually by the ATKV.
