Encourage your a cappella groups to sponsor an African village a cappella choir!

June 5, 5:00pm- Choir Festival in Cobue, Mozambique for the 16 surrounding villages

May, 2010- Musical masterclass sessions delivered in every village

The Manda Wilderness Community Trust, a charity organization that works to support development in the surrounding local communities, is organizing a choir festival for the sixteen neighboring villages in this rural region of Mozambique. The program will be a truly amazing opportunity for locals who regard music as an integral part of life, yet have had no exposure to formal musical education nor a venue in which to perform their talents. $100 is needed for each of the 16 villages choirs to participate in the musical masterclasses and choir festival.
