Video – A Postcard from Congo

A few months ago, as part of an OPERAnauts’ feasibility trip, we visited Kinshasa. OPERAnauts in collaboration with l’Orchestre Symphonique Kimbanguiste aims to stage a Classical Music & Opera concert (possibly the first in an ongoing series) in The Democratic Republic of Congo.

We met potential producers, partners, and sponsors. Hands down and a consistently warm-hearted, stylish, and wonderful people who graciously await our return. With fundraising, sponsorship, and development underway – Joy thought she would share this slideshow of a few highlights of our trip.
