Music educates children beyond the borders of regular schooling. Classical music, in particular, trains its players to be diligent, sensitive, persistent and conscientious. The Amadeus Music School, which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, strives to develop the aforementioned traits in students, traits they will find useful as they grow up to be an adult.
Capella Amadeus String Chamber Orchestra was formed by Grace Soedargo in 1993 as an embodiment of her idealistic dream of having an ensemble of international quality in Indonesia. From there, Capella Amadeus has pushed its boundaries in many ways: touring cities in Indonesia and South-East Asia, working with international conductors and artists, namely Cecilia Barczyk, Phillip Green.
