SAMRO Foundation Newsletter - June 2018

The SAMRO Foundation continues to provide quality support for numerous nonprofit music schools and arts projects around the country. The four arms of the SAMRO Foundation: Music Education, Stakeholder Hub, Archive and Concerts SA continue to work hard to help support and contribute to the National Arts. In the past month our new Chairman Kutlwano Masote, and new vice Chair, Nomfundo Xaluva, oversaw the allocation of just over R3 million to our partner organisations.
