The MIAGI Orchestra Tour of Europe 2024 


As a result of six successful international MIAGI tours over the past eight years, our orchestra was invited back on an extensive tour in July/August 2024.  invitations have been extended by some of the most prestigious venues, concert halls and music festivals in Europe such as the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival - Elbphilharmonie, Hamburg, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Young Euro Classic Festival - Konzerthaus Berlin and Gezeitenkonzerte in East Frisia.


MIAGI's artistic and educational partners throughout this tour are the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst (mdw) - University for Music and performing Arts in Vienna and the Bundesjugendorchester (BJO) - German National Youth Orchestra.


We are honoured and proud to confirm that the Austrian leg of our tour 2024 is under the patronage of Austria's First Lady, Doris Schmidauer and the German leg, under the patronage of Germany's First Lady, Elke Büdenbender.

The documentary ‘An unfinished Symphony’ about the MIAGI orchestra in the context of the legacy of Nelson Mandela, by Academy Award winner, Orlando Von Einsiedel. The film was made in collaboration between The Nobel Prize and National Geographic and premiered by The Nobel Prize and National Geographic in May 2020



The harmony with which the members of MIAGI Orchestra embrace their contrasting origins and background, playing together with a warmth of spirit that is infectious and inspiring, is a microcosm of Mandela’s dream and the South African ‘rainbow’ nation.
