Over the past 18 years MIAGI developed its brand around the uniting of music genres; Western classical, jazz and ancient indigenous/traditional (African classical) and the many vibrant urban South African music styles that developed from the1940/50s until today.
In this process, we developed our very fine youth orchestra, MIAGI Youth Orchestra playing music representing all the above mentioned genres with an eclectic result. The orchestra has toured internationally and has made a name for itself.
Throughout the years, we have offered our young members a vast range of opportunities; education, mentoring, horizon broadening international collaborations and tours, once in a life time opportunities and career promoting projects.
