Bizet and Mozart, across the world. What an incredible time to be a musician.
At times musicians may be approximately 2,000 kilometres apart, but thankfully music has no such boundaries or borders. Thanks to the power of the internet, Facebook, Instagram and the AcapellaApp, talented musicians from around the world have been able to come together and create their very own music community.
