Musical goodwill in South Africa!

In 2007 P Mauriat endorser and Professor of Music, Dr Karendra Devroop established the South African Music Outreach Project, a community outreach project that establishes music programs (wind ensembles) for disadvantaged kids impacted by crime, poverty, drugs, prostitution and AIDS in South Africa.

Over the past several years, the project has positively affected hundreds of kids across the country through music. Many of the students that were a part of the program have now embarked on careers in music. In 2012, Karendra established the newest music program at a high school for students with learning disabilities in the North West Province of South Africa. The result was the establishment of a fully functional 50 piece wind ensemble. The South African Music Outreach Project has proved that music has the ability to the transform the lives of students that face tremendous social and economical challenges. P Mauriat has been a proud sponsor of the South African Music Outreach project. We are committed to serving those individuals that do not have access to music. We look forward to a continued partnership with Dr Devroop as he embarks on revitalizing instrumental music performance in South Africa.
