African Children’s Choir: The choir is comprised of 24 African children, aged seven to 11 years old. Each child has lost one or both parents to poverty, war or AIDS. In their countries, education is not free, so through the efforts of the choir, the sponsor, Music for Life, is able to educate 6,500 children in seven African nations. The choir will perform in Windsor on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. at St. Andrew’s Church, 235 Amy Croft Dr. Tecumseh. Visit africanchi­ldrenschoi­r.com.
