A group of 14 young adults, known as the Young Africans Choir, will be performing for students at Sinking Fork Elementary School this Friday as part of several stops in a nine-month tour.
A news release says the Young Africans Choir is made up of recent high school graduates who are working to raise money for their college education. Many members plan to study in their home countries so that they can become leaders and help build a better future at home.
This session will begin at 12:45 p.m on Friday and will include small musical performances, a hands-on workshop with African instruments and an opportunity for students to ask questions. During the performance, students in grades 3 though 5 will have the opportunity to interact with the choir through instruction of an African dance, drum rhythm and a time for discussion and sharing differences in cultures.
Students of Sinking Fork have spent the month of October learning about Africa and African culture. This experience is sure to add to the richness of the arts and humanities program at the school.
During the choir’s visit to Hopkinsville, the group also plans to visit members of the Restoration House Family Worship Center at 7:00 p.m. on Friday. The event is free.
