Watoto Children’s Choir Returns to Campus – March 1


The Watoto Children’s Choir will once again be performing at Trinity. The free concert will be held Tuesday, March 1, at 7:30 p.m. in the Ozinga Chapel.

The choir is made up of 22 Ugandan orphans who are among the 2 million children who have lost parents to war and disease.

At its first appearance at Trinity in 2007, the choir attracted nearly 700 visitors to the Ozinga Chapel. Audience members enjoyed the musical and dance gifts of these children and also heard testimonies of how God had rescued them from hopelessness.

A free will offering will be taken to benefit the Watoto organization. For information, contact Troy Schemper at 708.293.4963 or troy.schemper@trnty.edu.
