CANBERRA GRAMMAR School is getting ready to host the UBUNTU African Choir for seven nights, where they will be billeted by CGS families and students.
The UBUNTU, a gifted group of singers, musicians and dancers are former members of the famous African Children’s Choir and have toured the world and graced the stages of Carnegie Hall and the London Palladium, also performing for US Presidents and Nobel Prize winners with celebrities like Will Smith, Bob Geldorf, Alicia Keys and Annie Lennox.
Having just graduated from high school through African Children’s Choir sponsorship, these talented 18-20 year olds are poised to fulfill their promise of making a difference in their own villages.
Canberrans will be treated to a spectacular show by UBUNTU which will reveal Africa’s vibrant culture. Audiences can expect to be inspired, the school says, by the transformation of these young adults who offer an unforgettable experience through evocative songs, mind blowing dance moves, haunting harmonies plucked from traditional instruments and masterful drummers pounding out ancient rhythms.
The UBUNTU, with support from various CGS choirs, will be performing a concert at school tomorrow that is open to the public.
