African children return to sing in village again
3:00pm Friday 25th April 2014 in News
A VILLAGE in North Oxfordshire will play host to a visiting African children’s choir on Wednesday.
The Ugandan singers, aged seven to 10, will stay for two nights in Deddington and will be hosted by local families in their latest visit to Oxfordshire.
While there they will give performances at Deddington CoE Primary School, as well as a public concert at the Church of St Peter and St Paul, in Church Street.
They will include African children’s songs, hand clapping, and traditional spiritual and contemporary music.
Schoolchildren from the village will also take part.
Rev Dr Hugh White, of Deddington Parish Church said: “We are delighted to have the choir with us again. Previous occasions have been great and this one will be even better, since our school will be involved in the concert this time.”
It will be the third time they have visited Deddington.
The concert will be held in aid of charity Music for Life, which works with African children’s choirs.
Choir organiser Stephen Robinson said: “The choir is really excited about returning to Deddington. Members had such a fantastic and inspirational experience the last time they performed.”
The concert will be performed at the Church of St Peter and St Paul. Doors open at 7pm.
