MASIXOLE MAKWETU – MARKETING MANAGER

Masixole’s own interest in opera began when he was still at school. The Cape Town Opera’s Youth Development and Education Coordinator, he expresses a passion for youth development that started when he joined Simon Estes Alumni Choir as the choir executive member, and grew through his involvement with the Western Cape Choral Music Association as Events Coordinator. His Cape Town Opera highlight was coordinating the Cape Winelands and Eden Karoo Choral Festival in 2015 and 2016, bringing together people from all walks of life in song. His favorite composer is Mozart, and not many people know that he’s a very shy person – when he’s got some time to himself he’s happy to spend it at home catching up on series.
