The African Children’s Choir melts the hearts of audiences with charming smiles, beautiful voices and lively African songs and dances.

On Tuesday Nov. 10, the African Children’s Choir will perform at the Sid Williams Theatre.

The program features well-loved children’s songs, traditional spirituals and Gospel favourites. Performances support African Children’s Choir programs, such as education, care and relief and development programs.

Music for Life (the parent organization for The African Children’s Choir) works in seven African countries such as Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan, Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa. MFL has educated over 52,000 children and impacted the lives of over 100,000 people through its relief and development programs during its history.

The purpose of MFL is to help create new leadership for tomorrow’s Africa, by focusing on education.

The African Children’s Choir has had the privilege to perform before presidents, heads of state and most recently Queen Elizabeth II, for her diamond jubilee. The choir has also had the honour of singing alongside artists such as Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, Michael W. Smith, and other inspirational performers.

Most recently, The African Children’s Choir recorded some tracks with Sarah Hickman for a CD, Love Is a Journey.

They will also have a small role in the upcoming Pan movie starring Hugh Jackman.

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. performance are $49 apiece ($44 for Sid Williams Theatre Society members), $34 for students, groups of 10 and more, and through SID TIX (by buying four or more performances).

Call the box office at 250-338-2430, ext. 1 for more info.

The African Children’s Choir is a nonprofit humanitarian and relief organization dedicated to helping Africa’s most vulnerable children.
