The concert went beyond music, evoking upliftment, captivation, and therapeutic solace. The warm reception and flawless execution of the music showcased the immense potential of Soweto’s youth and their musical prowess. An awards ceremony was held to recognise the learners’ outstanding progress, and generous contributions were made to support their musical journey. Local businessman Zweli Mntambo donated a violin, Masote contributed a clarinet, and activist Nhlanhla “Lux” Dlamini presented additional instruments. Mntambo urged the community to donate unused instruments to sustain the musical aspirations of these budding musicians.

The awards ceremony concluded with a soul-stirring rendition of the local hymn “Rea Ho Leboha” by the brass band. Masote expressed gratitude to parents for their support and thanked the management of Soweto Theatre for providing a remarkable platform for the young musicians. Building on the concert’s success, a week-long music camp was organised, enrolling 120 learners from Soweto, Soshanguve, and neighbouring parts of Johannesburg, allowing them to continue their musical exploration and growth.
