The Safaricom Youth Orchestra is an exciting musical project launched by CEO Bob Collymore in April 2014. It brings together 70 Children aged between 10 and 18 years from different backgrounds, united by music! All of them are gifted, passionate and committed to their musical journey. They dazzled the audience at their debut performance, featuring the Safaricom choir on 12th October 2014.
The Orchestra meets to rehearse every Saturday under the directorship of Dr. Duncan Wambugu and Levi Wathaka who works with the best instrumental teachers in Kenya. For all the members, this is an opportunity of a lifetime to develop into the best musicians they can possibly be. Beyond the music, the ensemble is about friendship, fun and the universal power of music to unite mankind. For as they play together, the children are one and all their differences are forgotten.
