African Children’s Choir to Perform in Dallas




The African Children’s Choir wraps up their year-long tour of the U.S. entertaining and enchanting audiences across the country with a special performance from at the Bush Presidential Center on December 13. The evening will also feature clips from Imba Means Sing, a documentary film chronicling the journey of former choir members and spreading the message of dignity and hope. Producer Erin Bernhardt will be in attendance. Tickets include after-hours entry to new special exhibit, A Season of Merriment and Museum.

Thirty years ago, Ray Barnett was on a humanitarian trip to war-torn Uganda when he gave a small boy a ride from his decimated home to the safety of another village. His simple song became the catalyst for a program that has changed the lives of thousands of children and reshaped the future of the African continent. The choir raises funds that provide housing and education to Ugandan children.

 

Cost is $30 members/$45 public. Location: 2943 SMU Blvd., Dallas. For more information, call 214-200-4300 or visit BushCenter.org.
