The Long Center is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit dedicated to broadening the appreciation and enhancing the enjoyment of the cultural arts.
The Long Center presents the African Children’s Choir, January 4 in Rollins Studio Theatre.
With a focus on education as a means for change, the African Children’s Choir is currently caring for underprivileged and destitute children throughout Africa. On their concert tour, the children of the Choir melt the hearts of audiences with their charming smiles, beautiful voices and lively African songs and dances. The program features well-loved songs, Gospel spirituals and contemporary favorites. The African Children’s Choir invites you to be a part of this free event
For over 30 years, the Choir has represented all of Africa’s children at events like Live 8 and World AIDS Day, and to massive global audiences through TV programs and film soundtracks. In the West, the children’s music has brought hope and healing to places like Ground Zero in New York and in Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina. In Kenya, the children sang as brothers and sisters in a country divided by tribal tensions. While the significance of this global audience is enormous, the organization continues to help Africa’s most vulnerable children today, so they can help Africa tomorrow.
The African Children’s Choir has performed thousands of community concerts around the world and has been welcomed for special performances at such places as the United Nations, Royal Albert Hall, the White House, Carnegie Hall and the London Palladium. The Choir has performed for US Presidents, the Queen of England and Nobel Prize laureate Nelson Mandela.
