The beneficiaries are 4 young, talented, individuals who are part of the Cantare Children's Choir.
Storm Venter, Elizabeth Greyvenstein, Catherine Greyvenstein and Eldone Smit are 4 of about 80 Choristers who have been selected from all over Gauteng. They have been chosen to represent their schools, province and South Africa in Italy next year at the Sun of Italy, which will be held in Pesaro, Italy. 1 of the 4 individuals is my youngest daughter, Storm, who is only 11 years old. The other children are between 9 and 11 themselves.
This is a very prestigious competition and only selected choirs are invited to attend the competition.
These 4 young talents have voices of angels and when they sing, they bring tears to peoples eyes. They have been featured on Mix FM and, after a small performance, the audience was calling in and telling us how honored they were to have listened to these children.
Each of the 4 children involved have a solo in the choir and each solo will be performed at the competition.
Ideally, we would like to reach our target by December 2019 so that all funds can be paid over to the Choir Administrator.
The funds will be split as such:
R30 000 - Airline tickets, visa's, transport in Italy, Accomodation
R10 000 - To be converted into Euro's as spending money for each Choir member to get a momento.
Each donation will not only bring these young children closer to being able to represent their country, but it will give them the chance to go see a city of culture. A city where some of the worlds greatest singers and classical musicians either became famous or started their own careers.
We are also aiming to make this tour an educational one for the members by giving them a chance to learn about the worlds history as well.
