On July 9, the Accra Symphony Orchestra and its vocal section, LUMINA, will give the people of Accra something to remember for life.
This will be at a groundbreaking concert which has been dubbed, ‘Accra Goes To The Opera.’
It will be held at the Accra International Conference Center at 7:30pm.

The orchestra has become a force to reckon with as one of the best in Classical Music Ensembles in Africa.
It was created in 2012, as the brainchild of Dr. Mensa Otabil, and was primarily an instrumental ensemble. With the addition of the operatic voices, LUMINA in 2014, the Accra Symphony Orchestra is poised to pioneer a classical and operatic musical renaissance in Africa. The Orchestra has a vast repertoire of opera, operative pop and classical music from all world cultures.
