Each year, CTO’s team of singers, an accompanist and an education facilitator embark on a country-wide tour to provide music workshops for thousands of learners competing in South African Schools Choral Eisteddfod. Due to the lockdown of SA in March, this year’s team was forced to cut their tour short. CTO’s Youth Development and Education department is now working together with the Department of Basic Education to provide these workshops online, in a series of 12 instructional videos to be made available on CTO’s YouTube channel. The videos will demonstrate proper vocal technique, highlight specific challenges to each piece and voice type, and showcase past SASCE competition winners now singing professionally. The launch date will be announced shortly; please check our Facebook page for regular updates. . Thanks to the UK Friends of Cape Town Opera, CTO’s Patrons, the City of Cape Town and the MariaMarina Foundation for their support.
