BAKERSFIELD - The Ugandan Orphans Choir performed before a full house at the Bakersfield Museum of Art Wednesday morning, as a part of the museum's first Wednesday series.
Held the first Wednesday of every month, each guest presents a unique presentation on a variety of art and music related topics.
The Ugandan Orphans choir has performed nationwide at churches, schools, at Disneyland, on King 5 Television's "New Day Northwest," at Qwest Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks, and on the steps of the White House.
The Ugandan Orphans Choir is a ministry of Childcare Worldwide, which has been dedicated to empowering children in the developing world since 1981. Through child sponsorship, Childcare Worldwide brings hope to children in need by providing them with an education that will set them up for future employment and break the cycle of poverty in their lives.
By coming to this event, you will enjoy traditional African song and dance, as well as help children in need all around the world.
Sponsored by Chevron and the National Endowment for the Arts.
