Ugandan orphans choir at Shoreline CC March 16

Comprised of ten children ages 11-14 from the Ssese Islands located on Uganda’s Lake Victoria, this talented choir will delight audiences with tribal drumming, dancing, singing and story telling as they perform traditional African folk songs. Brought to you by the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council, audiences just can’t seem to get enough of what these children have to share, from their natural musical talents to their raw expression of African culture. People are also amazed at the deep joy these children have despite the circumstances they came from.

All ten children's lives were transformed through Childcare Worldwide’s sponsorship program and now they help other children through this unique and powerful program by raising awareness of the desperate needs of children living in developing countries.The choir is a ministry of Childcare Worldwide—a non– profit organization dedicated to transforming lives through sponsorship and education which ultimately leads to employability. The organization is based out of Bellingham, Washington and has been serving impoverished children since 1981. Childcare Worldwide has worked in Uganda for many years as well as eight other developing countries throughout the world,

The concert is Saturday, March 16, 11am and will be held at the Shoreline Community College Campus Theater located at 16101 Greenwood Ave N, Building 1600 in Shoreline WA. Tickets to this family friendly performance are $8 and can be purchased by calling the Shoreline – Lake Forest Park Arts Council office at 206-417-4645 or by going to the Arts Council webpage.
