Classical Music...For the First Time

What would it be like to experience classical music for the first time if you had never had the chance to hear it live before? An article by Jade Witten in IOL reports on the experiences of the students of Inkwenkwezi Senior Secondary School in South Africa upon being visited by the Geneva Brass Quintet and hearing classical music for the first time:

"I can't believe they played our anthem and a song that we know, it was special to me. I feel excited. I would also like to play and travel the world like them," Khuthala Mgodini, 18, said.

Abulele Makubalo, 17, said she wanted her principal to introduce classical music at their school so that she could learn to play.

You might want to look out for some of these students making a mark in the music world in the next 10-20 years...
