GROW 2010™ (article first published : 2005-12-5)

Baroque 2000 orchestra recently announced its new educational project which will train street children living in various Durban shelters to play musical instruments, and to perform in their own orchestra at the 2010 Soccer World Cup (see separate article – possibly now moved to Music Archives).

Grass Root Orchestra Worldcup 2010 (GROW 2010™) will be officially unveiled at a Press Conference at 10h00 on December 8 in Clifton School Hall, Lambert Road Morningside. All the professional music teachers involved in the project will be on hand to answer questions, as will senior staff from the City’s Children’s Care organisations. Refreshments will be served, and all are invited to hear more about this exciting, challenging, and probably unique enterprise.

Those interested in attending are asked to contact the organisers on 083 460 5541 or e-mail: sursouth@iafrica.com

The project is also looking for sponsors for the programme. Individual children can be sponsored at the rate of R80 per month (four lessons); alternatively donors can contribute to a fund for buying instruments and teaching materials. The website is www.grow2010.co.za
