Good news for the Youth Training Centre of Valelevu as there will be no sharing of instruments after the delegation from Guangzhou in China donated 125 musical instruments with approximately $70,000 to train youths and enhance their knowledge of musicians.

While speaking with fijivillage News, Music Theory and Brass Bander Trainer, Lorenzo Fonmoa says it has been a dream to provide each instrument to every student.

Minister for Youth and Sports, Jese Saukuru says the instruments provided will further enrich their training and give them the tools they need to excel in their musical journey.

Saukuru says music is a universal language that bridges cultures and brings people together.

He says that this partnership between Fiji and China will continue to flourish and bring greater opportunities for our youth.

Meanwhile, a delegation from Guangzhou City, Guo Yonghang says the musical instrument provided will further enrich the musical life of the young people in Fiji.

Yonghang says it is also their strong inspiration that Guangzhou and Fiji can take music as a medium to promote mutual understanding.

The Youth Training Centre will have a march tomorrow from the Flea Market to the Civic Centre at 8am.
