The Hugo Lambrechts Music Centre nurtures the talents of young music enthusiasts of all backgrounds and provide them with tuition in all the symphonic instruments, theory and aural training. They are enrolled for external practical and theory examinations (UNISA, Trinity Guildhall or Associated Board of Royal Schools of Music) and eagerly participate in the activities and concerts of the Music Centre. Lack of funding prevents many hardworking and talented students from continuing with music. Adopt-a-Muzo was created to generate funds to support these students. Adopt-a-Muzo is registered through the Hugo Lambrechts Music Centre Trust.
More information is available on their website:

Link2Grow supports Shannon Scrimgeour in the Adopt-a-Muzo programme since September 2014. Link2Grow made a financial contribution towards her participation in the European tour of the Hugo Lambrechts Symphony Orchestra during December 2016. The photograph was taken in Budapest with the Donau in the background.
