What is our Misssion?
To improve the quality of lives of young and aspiring singers and musicians, especially those from communities that are still very underprivileged in Africa. This is achieved by creating a concrete platform from which these young singers and musicians can showcase their work and talents.
 
By providing an educational program to harness their skills so that they gain enough insight to the craft, the business and the career while also engaging, stimulating, educating and providing entertainment for our communities by producing high quality performances of opera and classical music.
What is our main Goal?
The main goal is to provide young gifted artists with an avenue for personal and professional development by offering opportunities to showcase their abilities, the best of which will be selected for ongoing support by the organisation.

  • Enable the training, education and nurturing of young South African musicians, particularly singers by supporting local, national and international collaborations.

 

  • Act as a bridge between South African young artists and professional music institutions in South Africa and abroad.
