We are over the moon to welcome back the fantastic Pearl of Africa Choir to Shrewsbury School.
The Pearl of Africa Children's Choir Ltd, comprising 20 children aged 7 to 16 years from the Molly and Paul Childcare Foundation schools and orphanages in Uganda, will be performing traditional music and dance in African national costume in venues across the region.
The talented young singers, dancers and drummers come from a background of hardship and many are orphans as a result of the great killer diseases of their homeland- HIV/AIDS and malaria.
Pearl of Africa Child Care is a UK-based charity whose main activity is raising funds for the seven schools and homes run by the Molly and Paul Child Care Foundation - a Ugandan non-government organisation which provides education, food, shelter and healthcare to orphaned and destitute children in the Kampala and Masaka district. The charity now runs a group of eight schools and a clinic, providing education, food, shelter and healthcare for nearly 3,000 youngsters.
As part of their nationwide tour, the Pearl of Africa Children’s Choir bring their high octane mix of traditional African music, dance, drumming in national costume to the Maidment Auditorium.
It’s an entertaining and moving performance we’re excited to welcome back to the School, and all are invited to join us for what promises to be a fabulous evening of entertainment.
FREE admission with a retiring collection; donations to Pearl of Africa Child Care will help to raise much needed funds for the schools and homes in Uganda.
Tickets are available from www.ticketsource.co.uk/shrewsburyschool or Juliet Young on 01743 280812.
