Watoto Children's Choir visits from Uganda

Filed Under:

For the little music lovers and dancers, a fun event - for a great cause - this Thursday night, November 9, in Old Town:

The Watoto Children's Choir from Uganda, East Africa will perform at The Athenaeum at 7 p.m. The concert is free and open to the public, but they do accept donations to benefit children in Uganda orphaned by AIDS.

The choir tours internationally - and has performed at the White House. Their program is a blend of native African rhythms, contemporary gospel music, and ethnic dance.

Thanks to local mama Cathleen Phelps for sending this annoucement my way!
