Our Story

Welcome

We believe our projects to be ‘Prevention Projects’.  Studies world wide show how active participation in music and the arts activities improves the quality of social and academic performance among children and the youth.  It helps them to stay away from gangs and substance abuse.  Loveline Arts Foudation uses the music projects as a tool of social upliftment, social development and a basis for job creation.

It Started With…

a Proffesional Opera Singer, Loveline Madumo-Sathekge, started a community upliftment project in her home town (Ga-Rankuwa).  The project aims to reach, uplift and unite the community, creates regular performance opportunities for the artists.  The foundation introduces home grown talent and creatr new audiences for opera and classical music.  The project started in 2009 with a Christmas Concert, followed with a  Valentines Concert in February 2010 and a  Woman’s month concert in 2012, to critical acclaim.  In 2014 with the wonderful sponsor from National Arts Council, the project spread its wings to Temba (Hammanskraal) with a Valentines concert, also to critical acclaim. 
The project is perfect vehicles to create better lives for everyone and bring diverse groups of people together through classical music and other genres.  The initial project starts with auditions in the Townships for people who are interested in being on stage and showcase their talents.  The event is in the form of a classical concert, where each performer renders their items with piano or any variety of items including solos, duos, trios, and group performances.  At the end of the performance the young performers will be afforded the opportunity to share stage with professionals, performing a few items together, and the concert ends up with all the performers of the day sharing the stage to sing well known songs together.  This creates a very exciting atmosphere for the comminity at large.
