GROW 2010™" (article first published : 2005-11-11)

Baroque 2000’s Michel Schneuwly has announced the official launch of an innovative and exciting educational project to be run under the "umbrella" of Baroque 2000.

The aim is to teach street-children living in Durban shelters the art of playing orchestral instruments. The aim is to form, by 2010, an orchestra that will be able to perform at various events around the forthcoming 2010 Soccer World-Cup.

“In five years time, these children will be exposed to the world press and media and will be able, through their newly discovered art and talent, to entertain and meet with some of the top football icons of this world!,” says Michel. “The project will take these destitute and deserving children through the discipline of mastering a musical instrument and will give them the incentive, the focus and the motivation in life that they well deserve.”

Approximately 300 children living in various shelters have already been approached through their organisers. The project has also received the "thumbs up" by various children's organisations, leading schools and City officials.

The project is called GROW 2010™. It is now a registered Trademark with the Department of Trade and Industry (Reg. No. 2005-20644). Anyone wishing to support Baroque 2000's new adventure should become a subscriber by sponsoring one (or more) child at the cost of R80 a month which represents four lessons per month per child.

“We obviously also need funds for the purchase of musical instruments – strings, woodwinds and brass,” adds Michel. “This asset investment over five years represents R250,000.”

More information and subscribers’ forms from Michel Schneuwly on 031 312 5539 or e-mail: sursouth@iafrica.com
