MIAGI: Breaking borders through music

Understanding that culture is an essentiall part to the well-being of children, the MIAGI youth orchestra works to encourage the collaboration between individuals from diverse backgrounds and ethnicities through music.
Working with UNESCO, the orchestra plays a mix of music reflecting various cultures including classical, jazz and indigenous.
In 2014, the group embarks on their Celebrating 20 Years of Freedom in South Africa tour to mark the end of apartheid in 1994.
