Kenya, the Art of Music
National Youth Orchestra & Ghetto Classics
Singer Elizabeth Njoroge is the founder and director of the Art of Music Foundation in Kenya, which inspires the musical life of Kenya and beyond.
The Art of Music Foundation is providing music education to over 500 children and young people in the slums of Nairobi, among many other projects. In 2018, I visited this impressive project for the first time. I worked with the Ghetto Classics and the Kenya National Youth Orchestra and gave a workshop for young conductors in Nairobi. In 2023, I will again work with some of the orchestras and a group of young conductors.
