Lwazi Dlamini (25) (Baritone) is currently a third year National Diploma: Vocal Art student at the Tshwane University of Technology.  Throughout his high school education, he was involved in choral/opera singing competitions. At the time, he was a bass singer and became four-time champion of the Swazi Bank Schools Singing Competitions between 2013 and 2017. These achievements convinced him to pursue opera after completing his high school education.  During  during his second year, he was selected to sing the role of The Count in the department’s student production of Le Nozze Di Figaro.   This experience further fuelled his desire to grow and reach his highest goals and aspirations. This year, Lwazi is singing the role of Barone Dupuol in Sempre Opera’s production of La Traviata.
 
Winie Mahlangu (21) (Soprano) is currently a third-year National Diploma: Vocal Art student at the Tshwane University of Technology.  She started participating in choral music and SASCE competitions when she was at Vulamehlo Senior phase school.  During this time, she was also singing at church.  These activities contributed to the development of her interest in singing opera and choral music.  She enrolled for Vocal Art studies at the Tshwane University of Technology in 2017. During her second year she was selected to sing the role of Susanna in the department’s student production of Le nozze di Figaro. She describes this as 'an amazing experience', which made her realise that this is exactly what she wants to do. Back to lunchtime and evening recitals
