Matsiko World Orphan Choir from Liberia will be providing a free concert for the greater Hendersonville community. 22 teenagers will sing and dance in clothing representative of their native Liberia. The concert begins at 6:00 PM and will last about one hour.
The mission of Matsiko World Orphan Choir is to use the unifying power of music to uplift every child, bring joy to all who listen, and to inspire generosity that provides a complete education for vulnerable children.
Called “Our world’s treasure” by Disneyland in March of 2012, and “The greatest ambassadors for our world’s orphaned and vulnerable children” by a former US Congressman, the Matsiko World Orphan Choir tours the United States to promote hope through education.
Since 2008, The Matsiko World Orphan Choir has brought together our world’s orphaned and vulnerable children to share their story of turning the pain of loss, hunger, and hopelessness into personal empowerment, an educational scholarship through their nation’s university or vocational levels to instill love, joy, hope, and optimism for the future.

They come to the states on tour to bring attention to the conditions of orphan youth all over the world and raise funds for program development back home. The internet videos of other performances portray a harmonious and spirited group in their native costumes.
