Our Choir

Christmas performances young and old 2016

This school year, our choir is made of 15 students that auditioned to be a part of the group. The group is special because it is motivated and student-led, and formed for the sole purpose of celebrating and worshiping together! Their colorful and vibrant cultures are represented in their original dances that they perform all over the city.

Our African Hope Choir will be performing at Saint John’s Christmas Bazaar on November 4th at 12pm. All are welcome; we hope to see you there!

Music Classes

In January, the music theorf940523b-7a26-446d-8ca8-a76ad1436da3y program that is currently being offered was greatly enriched by the donation of two new keyboards! Through this donation and the availability of a music teacher, we have the ideal opportunity to provide a larger impact academically. This sort of extra-curricular activity has the ability to bolster the self-worth of our refugee children through the expression of music.
Our music teacher, Sarah, began volunteering at AHLC in the fall. She says, ” I am incredibly blessed to work here, where the students are eager to learn and incredibly smart! To be able to see music touch the lives of these students is a joy.
As for the choir she has been working with, she adds,                 ” They are incredibly tal0e6c54b3-6710-4daf-af3c-5f1d5f0d5b43ented, putting together pieces of music that they love, adding movement to it, and performing at a high level in front of a large audience! They have already performed twice for the public at celebrations, and will continue to do so this spring!”

Thanks to a generous donation from the Austrian Embassy, we have been able to purchase eleven new desktop computers with Microsoft software installed. We were also able to purchase a large TV screen for teaching demonstrations. This is a tremendous blessing because it improves the quality of the education we are able to offer the students and allows us to use more hands-on approaches.
