30 In 2013 UJ entered into an agreement with the Johannesburg Youth Orchestra Company JYOC and the POPCRU group of companies PGC. The three-way agreement signed at JYOCS 2013 Celebration of Spring concert saw JYOC allocated premises for their exclusive use on UJS Bunting Road campus in Auckland Park. The building formerly a hostel kitchen required significant refurbishment to make it fit for purpose and Workerslife a subsidiary of the POPCRU Group of Companies PGC was secured as the anchor donor for the refurbishment pledging a total of R3 million to complete the project. This is truly a dream realised. The timing could not have been better especially given the precarious economic climate. It is extraordinary and extremely encouraging that a company such as the PGC recognises the value of investing in JYOC which ultimately creates the space for us to continue changing lives. The JYOC wishes to express its deepest gratitude to PGC and to UJ for their respective generous and significant contributions to this exciting development. Operating in Soweto Johannesburg Evaton and Sebokeng the Johannesburg Youth Orchestra Company JYOC is a centre of musical excellence in instrumental tuition. Responding to the needs of the youth in all communities the JYOC is a meeting place for over 600 young people with musical aspirations. Almost 300 of the students are members of one of 10 graded ensembles and orchestras that cater for all levels of competence. JYOCs new home is now complete and was officially opened on Tuesday 2 June 2015.
