Ubuntu: African Children’s Choir return for high school graduate tour

The African Children’s Choir (ACC) is returning to the Mountains with a series of concerts starring Ubuntu, a troupe of talented high school graduates from Uganda and Kenya.

Since 2013, concerts in the Blue Mountains by children and young adults from the ACC have raised tens of thousands of dollars to educate extremely poor children in Africa from primary school to university.

ACC children have performed for Queen Elizabeth II and Nelson Mandela and shared the stage with stars like Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox and U2.

 

In Australia ACC have sung with Jonathon Welch from the Choir of Hard Knocks, opera singer Deborah Cheetham and Kate Miller-Heidke.


Benefits of these tours flow both ways:

The children from the ACC and the young adults of Ubuntu are inspired to aim for possibilities beyond the daily struggle to survive, and audiences are inspired by the talent, energy, happiness and hope of performers who have grown up in poverty.

Performer Emmanuel Mutsinzi, from a slum in Uganda’s capital, Kampala, says: “Making music brings many things to life. It heals, speaks to the broken-hearted and motivates people even when you least expect it to.”
