Watoto African Children's Choir

Posted: Tuesday, January 29, 2008 by: Carol Baker | Category: Events

Clyde Communities for the Arts presents Watoto, Uganda Children's Choir from East Africa on Saturday, February 9, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. at the Clyde High School Auditorium.

Watoto means ... "The Children". Since 1994, Watoto Children's Choir from Kampala, Uganda, has regularly toured the United States, Canada, and Great Britain. Accompanied by a small team of adults, Watoto's performances are a soulful blend of native African rhythms, contemporary gospel music, and ethnic dance. These children are among the 800,000 children in Uganda that have had the tragic and life-altering experience of losing one or both of their parents to the AIDS virus. Now, through their lively performances, the Watoto Children's Choir shares their unique experiences, as well as their newfound joy and hope, which will thrill and dazzle audiences everywhere.

There is no cost for this concert, so tickets are not necessary. But, Watoto will accept a love offering.

Any questions, please contact the Clyde-Green Springs Board of Education at 419-547-0588.
