The Namirembe Cathedral Choir started over a century ago mixed boys and girls but changes had to occur during the times of President Idi Amin Dada and a new system was introduced of the choir consisting only boys and men, to stay focused and concentrating on the work of serving God.
As the conductor of the choir Mr. Nkugwa, during the times of President Milton Obote, the choir evolved into a disciplined organization and due to his strict leadership, singing the correct notes and keeping your breath through the chant was the number one priority. Along his side was Ms. Soul who moved later to Australia to persue his music career.
Later Mr. Mubiru Michael took over as the conductor of Namirembe Cathedral Choir who conducted for several years and later lost his life in a car accident, may his soul rest in peace.
Mr. Sekibaala John, Mr. Mutesasira Derik, Mr. Luggya Paul and many others are among the 60 and above active members who took over the duties of the choir. These are the times when the choir with the avaiability of social media, has exposed itself to the world in the name of delivering the gospel to the rest of the world as Christ sent them to do.
