African children’s choir brings Ugandan flavor to Elk River
The Ugandan Orphans Choir will make a special appearance at Central Lutheran Church in Elk River Wednesday, Aug. 3 at 7 p.m.
Made up of 10 children, the choir will perform songs, Ugandan tribal dances and drumming.
Elk River is part of a tour across the United States, sponsored by Childcare Worldwide, a nonprofit organization that helps transform the lives of children through sponsorship and education.
Along with Central, the children’s concert is being hosted by Christ Church and Lakes Christian Church.
Those attending the free concert are also asked to bring new and gently used shoes for the nonprofit organization, Making a Difference Inc.
The organization plans to send the shoes to Uganda for distribution.
Central Lutheran Church is located at 1103 School St. N.W.
