Classical Music Pioneers in Africa
Mbabane Chamber Orchestra (MCO) was founded in 2016 as the first chamber orchestra in eSwatini. Each member came from diverse background, nationality, and professions but gathered under the same goal and passion–to restore, inspire, and unite Eswatini through a beautiful orchestra harmony. Since its foundation, the team has restlessly given various concerts, guest performances, and orchestra demonstration sessions in eSwatini, South Africa, and South Korea.

eSwatini community has a fervent love for choral music and organizes and gathers around various choral competitions.
On June 30th, in partnership with National School Choir Association and eSwatini Bank, Mbabane Chamber Orchestra accompanied the finalists in one of the most popular choral competitions of the year. This is certainly an unprecedented step in eSwatini music industry in a sense that this is the first time the event was accompanied by the local orchestra, not the foreign.

This summer, we were privileged to host an amazing group of young musicians from Teaching Artists International, US.
