The event will be a concert of opera arias, duets, and excerpts performed by international artists in aid of Voices of South Africa Trust – an organization dedicated to the education and mentoring of opera stars in Africa.

The initiative is artist-driven: workshops and masterclasses are held across South Africa to encourage and draw out the existing talent in children who come from underprivileged backgrounds.

Headlining the event will be South African stars Njabulo Madlala and Caroline Modiba, as well as UK performers Sarah-Jane Brendon and William Vann.
