Culture in brief: Ugandan Kids Choir coming to Montclair
On Wednesday, July 25, 7 p.m., the Ugandan Kids Choir will perform traditional Ugandan songs and dances, to raise awareness about child sponsorship.
The choir is made up of 10 children, ranging in age from 8 to 13. They will perform at Montclair Community Church, 143 Watchung Ave.
All ten children have been given hope through Childcare Worldwide’s Sponsorship Program and now they are coming to the U.S. to spread that hope to audiences all across the United States. The choir has performed nationwide at churches, schools, at Disneyland, on King 5 Television’s “New Day Northwest” and at Qwest Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks. The Ugandan Kids Choir is a ministry of Childcare Worldwide, which according to a release, has been dedicated to empowering children in the developing world since 1981. The event is free.

Megan DiRienzo, Curator of Education at the San Angelo Museum of Fine arts says, “All of you have amazing talents, beautiful voices and some serious dance skills! A performance like yours was a once in a lifetime opportunity. We fully support you on your mission to end child poverty!”
