GENEVA — The African Children's Choir will present a free concert at 7 p.m. Aug. 24 at First United Methodist Church on Main Street.
The Grammy-nominated choir was here three years ago and has since traveled the world; doors will open at 6:15 p.m.; the concert is free and open to the public.
The concert is sponsored by the Edward and Coretha Jenkins Scholarship Committee in conjunction with First United Methodist Church and others.
The evening will be a mix of song and dance from Africa with popular, Gospel and contemporary music, much of it accompanied on traditional instruments by the children. The choir is made up of 23 Ugandan children, ages 7-12, representing all the children of Africa who have been challenged by famine and war.
A free will offering will be taken; proceeds will help provide schools in the impoverished areas of Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Sudan, Nigeria, and Ghana.
Donations to the Jenkins Scholarship Committee may be mailed to Jenkins Scholarship Committee, P.O. Box 879, Geneva 14456.
