Without her passion and love for classical music, we would have never been where we are today. Let us tell you a short story about our talented conductor, mentor and leader. The founded of our orchestra, Carina Brown.
Originally from Johannesburg, Carina finished her schooling in the Eastern Cape. After school, she knew exactly what she wants to be doing. She followed her passion and completed her B. Mus at the University of Port Elizabeth. Before embarking on a wonderful journey that Carinas Musici brought her , Carina was teaching music at the Belville High School and later at the Hopefield High School. As busy and creative as today ,Carina was involved with various ensembles while filling a position at Hopefield High School. This ensemble eventually grew to a point that marked our beginning. Carina went onto establishing the West Coast Youth Orchestra.
. From there on due to her constant dedication and love for music, we have the amazing opportunity to do what we love... play music.
- 2015, Carina was awarded The Minister's Special Award for Outstanding Achievement for Women in the Arts and Culture at the Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport (DCAS) Awards.
