MIAGI History & Archive


The Music is a great Investment MIAGI Journey began in 2001, under the name International Classical Music Festival, ICMF. We said (and still today say) that all music of great power, significance and beauty, posesses intrinsic, sublime value which makes it last over centuries, even year thousands. To us, this is what the word 'classical' in our name of those days meant.

All cultures in all corners of the world, have given birth to such everlastingly powerful, significant and beautiful music.

In 2005 Miriam Makeba, for the first time in South Africa, performed together with a large symphony orchestra. These historic MIAGI concerts marked the beginning of 'Mama Afrika's' retreat from the international stages.
