Opera Fellows Program
The Opera Fellows program helps Congolese musicians hone their skills in both teaching and performance, and gives them tools to share their skills, education and experience with the Kinshasa community and beyond. Opera Fellows are able to discover opera as a universal musical art form, and can in turn pass their art on to their community, creating a ripple of musical impact across Congo.
Music CoOPERAtive by OPERAnauts
