THE SWEET ROAR OF CHAMPIONS!!!

Cranborne MUMC choir entered themselves into the realms of greatness as they upset the odds staked against them and powered themselves to clinch the Zimbabwe East Annual Conference MUMC Music festivals for the very first in such devastating fashion at Matendeudze UMC in Mutambara on November 17, 2018.

It was quite a historic moment for the choir and the church, the best result before that having come in the later half of the last decade when they finished second in Mutare.

With 25 choirs showcasing their musical prowess, Cranborne entered the festivals with the weight of expectations from the circuit and district firmly on their shoulders and oh boy they indeed rose like a phoenix when the time arrived.

Having avoided the dreaded first ballot, Cranborne picked letter W on the alphabet and the letter perhaps had a Win effect on it as when the time, the moment came, Cranborne indeed came.

Choir director Mr Liberty Maziti struck the own choice Mumwe ariko pamusoro, evoking emotions in the auditorium, with some even shedding tears as the choir’s presentation went straight down the hearts of many.

Maziti then combined with fiery chorister Mr Jonah Bepete for the main song Toenda Kune Musha Wedu, following the notations and spicing the song, hitting the correct chords so wanted by the adjudicators when the results came, it was no surprise.

When Cranborne exited the scene, the firm belief on people’s face where that they had just seen the winning ballot. Indeed, they were not off the mark.

Cranborne rocked and bagged all the major awards, winning the set piece and own choice to ignite wild celebrations amongst the choir members and an outpouring of elation 300km plus away at 18109 Dieppe Road.

Surely, this choir thus far has gone down in folklore as the most successful of the lot, achieving when there was needle like doubt it could go another way.

Its a moment they will continue to revel in for days, months and years with memories too of the unfortunate circumstances before and after the journey enough scars and evidence of the cost of following Christ in ministry.
