African Children's Choir to perform at JGHS

James Gillespie’s High School are delighted to have the unique opportunity of hosting the 38th African Children’s Choir.  The choir will be performing on Wednesday 19th September 2012 in JGHS school hall at 7-9pm. On Thursday 20th September the choir are leading two interactive workshops with JGHS pupils sharing their culture, music and dance. 

The children are from Uganda and are between the ages of 7 -11 years.  We are hoping to fundraise for the JGHS South Africa Project on the night of the concert, and promote future fundraising events for the project.

The African Children’s Choir travels the world, acting as the ambassador for Africa’s most vulnerable children. Their goal is to raise awareness and show that despite the desolate circumstances they come from, they can have a bright future and reach their potential. The Choir is just one program operated by Music for Life Institute.  Music for Life Institute (MFL) is committed to ensuring that the children in the Choir, and thousands of others in Africa, receive love, care, and a quality education that will change their lives.  With programs in Uganda, Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, and Rwanda, and supporting programs in Southern Sudan, Music for Life is “helping Africa’s most vulnerable children today, so they can help Africa tomorrow.”
