[Coweta Arts Tidbits] African Childrens Choir at Arts Centre on October 9


African Children's Choir At Arts Centre on October 9


     The Centre for Performing a Visual Arts of Coweta County has attracted performing artists from all over the nation and even from other countries.  On October 9 at 7 PM the Centre is presenting the noted Daraja Children's Choir of Africa in a special choral concert.   Admission is free, and donations will be accepted to benefit the African Children's Orphanage.


     The music to be performed by this choir is described in this way on the Centre's website:   

     The music begins and the drums beat as the room fills with the sound of the Daraja Children's Choir of Africa. Dressed in their vibrant costumes with radiant smiles on their faces, the children express the joy and hope they have found in Christ through African song and dance. Daraja means "bridge" in Swahili, and these 24 orphaned and vulnerable children have journeyed across the bridge all the way from Kenya to bring you a taste of African worship and praise. The Choir wishes to inspire you with the hope and love they have found in Jesus Christ, in spite of the severe hardships they have faced. Their performances are a blend of traditional African song and dance and contemporary Christian music, which shares that hope in a unique and powerful way.
     Information about the Daraji Choir can be found on their website
     The Arts Centre is located on Lower Fayetteville Road several miles east of Newnan.  Their website is www.thecentreonline,net
