Outreach - Integral to the Second Chamber Music Festival, Harare

Outreach is the primary focus of this year’s festival.  The evening concerts at Hoyle Field will host young musicians who will come and learn from the demonstration performances by these world class musicians. These concerts are open to the public, with tickets by donation available from Dandaro and Alo Alo from 20 August.  

In the daytime, the visiting musicians will be taken to various venues to work with and share their music with young musicians and children. More details will soon be provided here and on the Festival Facebook Page, about the Outreach programme.
