In-flight entertainment on short-haul flights is often lacking but not when you have the touring Cape Town Opera on board!
Cape Town, South Africa (01 August 2022) – Music is such a light in this life; it always makes people smile and, without a doubt, is the truest glimpse into any person’s soul. When we experience spontaneous music, life gets even better!
While everyone has different taste in music, being surprised by a performance is always an exciting one. Recently, the Cape Town Opera set off on tour to Gauteng and, on their return, gave passengers of their flight a surprise performance. While the plane was in mid-flight, the singers gave everyone a performance to remember. The passengers loved it, and the aircraft was filled with applause.
The Cape Town Opera is currently working towards raising funds for its youth development projects. The hope is to raise funds to purchase a vehicle to transport musical teams to different communities where they can provide training, coaching and talent scouting.
“Cape Town Opera would like to purchase a 7-seater VW Caddy for its Youth Development and Education team who works with schools in a huge variety and breadth of communities throughout South Africa, bringing professional singers, pianists, coaches and accompanists to learners in disadvantaged and rural communities and identifying South Africa’s next generation of opera singers.”
With more awareness about their charitable causes, the opera hopes to reach the fundraising goal and make some dreams come true. You can check that out here.
