CABS Head of Corporate and Institutional Banking, Cecil Ndoro, said CABS is committed to support the development of the arts and culture industry in Zimbabwe.
Addressing journalists at Harare International Festival of the Arts (HIFA) press conference on Monday, Ndoro said through partnering with arts and culture organizations such as HIFA, CABS remain committed to the vision of uplifting arts industry in Zimbabwe.
“HIFA holds a long standing record for contributing towards the development of arts and culture industry of our nation and we are proud to be associated with such a vibrant organization.
“This sponsorship is at the back of a very fruitful relationship that we enjoyed with HIFA over the years.
“CABS’s footprint covers virtually every facet of life in Zimbabwe and we try to match this through various community initiatives,” said Ndoro.
Ndoro added, the aim of this sponsorship is to contribute to sustainable economic development and enhance job creation by preserving, protecting and developing Zimbabwean arts, culture and heritage.
He said CABS this year brings the Classical Music Festival Celebration that will run for 3 days at St Georges College in Harare starting on the 29th of April to the 1st of May 2016.
“Art is something we are very good at in this country. We have got great cultural and artistic traditions and are the cutting edge for the future.
“We know that the success we see now has been built over many years, with private sector companies playing a major role in the development of arts and culture,” said Ndoro.
HIFA’s fun and fabulous mini- festival is celebration of classical music’s impact and influence. This unprecedented Harare event is an invitation to luxuriate in many classical concerts, but also to hear groups that fuse musical genres.
