Ofentse Pitse (27) Is the First Black Woman to Conduct and own the first ever all black Orchestra.

She was born in Mabopane, Tshwane, and played her first music instrument an English horn, at age 12 at the Salvation Army.

Ofentse grew up with her mother in a single-parent home but the influence of her grandfather never left her.

Ofentse was influenced by her grandfather, who was a trumpet player and an orchestra conductor.

Currently, she has a 40-member orchestra.
