Sowetan live ran a story about the first South African black woman to conduct and own the first-ever all-black orchestra.
Ofentse Pitse (27) played her first instrument - an English horn at the age of 12 and has never turned back from her love for music.
She has since learnt to play multiple instruments and proven that she is not afraid of a challenge.
The heart of it all was the leadership I saw and music coming from a background of church had a sort of spirituality around it, I saw what music could do. I sought that energy as a young kid.— Ofentse Pitse, First black woman to conduct and own the first ever all black orchestra
I have always wanted to go for the difficult things in life.— Ofentse Pitse, First black woman to conduct and own the first ever all black orchestra
