It was a night of pleasure and top-notch classical music for guests at the MTN Foundation MUSON School of Music’s Donor concert. The event, which took place at the Agip Recital Hall, Muson Center, Lagos yesterday, was an unforgettable experience for the audience who came prepared to be inspired, demonstrating their love and passion for good music.
The students of the MUSON School of Music thrilled the audience with their mastery of various musical instruments; transporting guests to a state of musical bliss with contemporary Nigerian tunes and classical renditions of Afro beats, rock, jazz, and hip hop on a wide array of musical instruments.
The concert was staged in honor of the long time partnership between MTN Foundation and MUSON. Since the year 2006, the MTN Foundation-sponsored MUSON Music Scholars program has produced students with excellent musical abilities who have gone on to become exceptional performers and professionals in the music and performing arts industry. MTN foundation’s sponsorship has added value to the entertainment industry outside the usual genres of music obtainable.
Speaking on the motive behind the concert, Mrs. Marion Akpata, Director, Musical Society of Nigeria, thanked MTN Foundation for supporting the institution and being the backbone of the institution since inception. “We definitely owe them a great debt and that is why we are using this concert to say thank you”, she said.
Mr. Dennis Okoro, Director, MTN Foundation, said MTN Nigeria and MTN Foundation exist to continuously make life brighter by inspiring, transforming, and empowering the Nigerian youths and societies, and this is the reason the organization will continue to empower the youths to become great.
