African Children’s Choir

by The Staff on December 18, 2013


They’ve performed with Alicia Keys, on American Idol and for President Obama. On Friday night, the African Children’s Choir will bring their special Christmas concert to the GE Theatre.

A 2009 performance with the Cincinnati Pops prompted one critic to write that the group “demonstrated their versatility in medleys spanning languages and cultures. . . . Their clear, agile voices and . . . dancing brought smiles to more faces than Santa, Rudolph and Frosty combined.”

The parent organization of the choir is Music for Life, founded in the 1950s by Anglicans; MFL is active in seven countries (Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan, Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa) and has educated over 52,000 children.

The African Children’s Choir will perform An African Christmas tomorrow (Friday, Dec. 20) at 7 PM in the GE Theatre at Proctors (432 State St., Schenectady). Tickets are $30. For more info, call the box office at 346-6204.
