From the sales of Cecilia Pinotage we are currently sponsoring weekly music appreciation classes at the local Kapel Primary School as well as a piano at Spruitdrift Primary.
After a tasting of Cecilia Pinotage a board member of Friends of Orchestral Music in Cape Town arranged a further sponsorship which now funds similar music classes at Spruitdrift Primary School a couple of kilometres down the road from Kapel.

And, if I could dream big again, I would dream of a concert where some of the currently untapped talent can make a debut on another memorable evening…
