Duo Zappa.Mainolfi's Soweto Project
The Pierino Ambrosoli Foundation supported several of their projects. The duo has also toured South Africa on several occasions, during which they have not only entertained audiences but also demonstrated their passion for music development. Their first passion project was mentoring and assisting the budding young musicians at Soweto’s Melodi Music School. Since 2011, Zappa and Mainolfi have been patrons of the Johannesburg Youth Orchestra, teaching, holding workshops, fundraising and performing with this important incubator of orchestral talent.
