Rainbow Concert performed by African Artists and Diplomats

The Diplomatic Corps in Pretoria is organising a charity concert on Saturday 28th of May, 2016.

The goal of the concert is to support young musicians from townships around Johannesburg and Pretoria to acquire musical instruments so that – after the finalization of their studies – they can start to earn a living by teaching music or performing at concerts and other public and private events.

The different music schools in the townships (beneficiaries) shall be supplied with musical instruments that can be handed out on loan (free of charge) to these musicians who have completed their studies and had to return their instruments (e.g. to the UNISA Music Foundation). The instruments are meant as a start up and have to be returned to the music school they come from as soon as the young musician has earned enough money from his/her trade to buy an instrument himself/herself.

The Concert costs have been covered by sponsors. Also corporate sponsors have provided generous donations to acquire a number of instruments for the township music schools. Individual donations also will be accepted at the entrance door of the Concert hall. Please note that all donations will be used in their entirety to purchase instruments for the beneficiary township music schools.

ENTRANCE IS FREE, but booking is essential.  To secure your place at the event, you must book online at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

The concert will take place on Saturday 28th of May, 2016 at 3pm at the Ennoch Sontonga Hall, UNISA Sunnyside Campus, (c/o Steve Biko and Justice Mahomed Street, Pretoria).
