What Can You Do?

 The Trust is looking for any help possible from donations, private benefactors as well as private sponsors in order to be able to stage the educational workshops in South Africa.


Your support will make a critical difference to the lives of many young, aspiring and still underprivileged talented South African musicians and singers. You can help us inspire the next generation of South African musicians and opera stars.



The 2019 festival is expected to cost R500,000 (£25 000) which principally represents costs of travel for the young singers chosen from across South Africa, accommodation, food, venue and piano hires. Most of the professional artists donate their services.
