African Children's Choir concert at Woods Memorial

The African Children's Choir will perform at a free concert at Woods Memorial Church, 611 Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd., Severna Park at 7 p.m. Sept. 13.

The internationally acclaimed and Grammy-nominated African Children's Choir has been invited to the United States to sing at the Sept. 11 memorial ceremony at the Pentagon.

The African Children's Choir is made up of children ages 5 to 12, many of whom have lost one or both parents. They will perform a lively program of song and dance featuring African tunes and ethnic instrumentation, as well as children's songs and traditional spirituals.

Since the choir was formed 15 years ago, it has performed in hundreds of concerts, including performances at the Royal Albert Hall in London, the United Nations in New York and the Berlin Stadium in Germany.

The choir has appeared on Good Morning America, CBS This Morning and The Today Show. Over the years, the choir has supported thousands of African children, helping to provide for their physical, spiritual and educational needs. The choir is an interdenominational, registered nonprofit charity.

The public is invited to the free church concert. There will be an opportunity for a free-will offering. Information: 410-647-2550.
