The heralded voices of the African Children’s Choir can be heard Friday, Dec. 1, at 7 p.m. at St. George’s Episcopal Church, 1250 Paige Place, in The Villages.
Tina Evans, administrative assistant at St. George’s, announced that the African Children’s Choir will be performing at The Villages as part of its U.S. Tour. Admission is free, but a free-will offering will follow the concert.
The free-will offering will help support the Music for Life Institute, which has relief and development programs in seven African countries and has educated more than 52,000 children, and impacted hundreds of thousands of lives, according to the organization’s press release. The African Children’s Choir has been Music for Life’s premier international program during its 30-year history.
A National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center release said: “Come and experience a performance that shows the beauty, dignity and potential of each African child. The African Children’s Choir melts the hearts of audiences with their charming smiles, beautiful voices and lively African songs and dances.”
Tonight’s program is scheduled to feature well-loved children’s songs, traditional spirituals and rhythmic Gospel favorites.
Nearly every performance is concluded with a thunderous standing ovation, according to numerous press releases on the African Children’s Choir. In spite of the tragedy that has marred their young lives, children are radiant with hope, musically gifted and always wonderfully entertaining, the release said.
