The African Children’s Choir will perform at the Williams Lake Alliance Church on Wednesday, July 23, at 7 p.m.
All of the children in the choir come from Uganda and are between ages nine and 11, said choir chaperone Nate Longstaff.
“We have 18 children — 10 girls and eight boys.”
The children will perform some old classics, as well as a new variety of songs, dances and drum solos.
They will also share stories and testimonies.
“It’s a completely unique experience to see children share their enthusiasm for life,” Longstaff said.
So far on this tour the children have performed in places such as San Francisco, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, before arriving in B.C. at the end of June.
While the concerts are free and open to all, a free-will offering is taken at the performance to support African Children’s Choir programs, such as education, care and relief and development programs.
