Ugandan orphans’ choir to perform at St Elisabeth’s Church

THE WATOTO Children’s Choir from Uganda are paying a visit to St Elisabeth’s Church on February 22 (7.30pm).

The choir present Watoto’s vision and mission through their music and dance, which is an energetic fusion of contemporary gospel and traditional African rhythm.
