Central Albertans will be able to experience lively African songs and dances.

The African Children’s Choir will perform at the Evangelical Free Church of Erskine on Good Friday.

The concerts are free and open to all – a free-will offering is taken at the performance to support African Children’s Choir through education, care and relief and development programs.

The choir is a non-profit humanitarian relief organization dedicated to helping Africa’s most vulnerable children.

Music for Life, the choir’s parent organization, works in Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda and South Africa. It has educated more than 52,000 children and impacted the lives of more than 100,000 people through its relief and development programs.
