"The African Children’s Choir’s goal is to raise awareness of the needs of orphaned and destitute children in Africa and to raise funds for continued development and support of the choir relief and development programs. The choir is made up of children ages 7-12 from Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda. Once choir members have completed a concert tour, they return to their homelands with the support, care and education necessary for bettering their future.
The choir is performing as part of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s Yuletide Celebration, but they will perform their Journey of Hope concert solo Dec. 17, 7 p.m. at Hilbert Circle Theatre on Monument Circle. The general admission ticket price is $25. Call 317-639-4300 or go to www.indianapolissymphony.org for tickets.
