Orchestra Biography

The Vesta Orchestra is an independent Nigerian - based Orchestra dedicated to the promotion of music by classical composers of African descent, which have been largely ignored over centuries. 

Our repertoire is therefore Classical, AfriClassical, Highlife and Contemporary music.

Our goal is to commission classical music and operatic works by contemporary composers of African descent, with the intention to showcase African influence in Classical music.

We wish to draw even more attention to the astounding musical talent available on the African continent.
