“Amazing,” “So inspiring,” “What beautiful voices!” These are just some of the comments heard after most every concert by the Hope Haitian Choir.
This non-traditional choir, made up of 15 young people ranging in age 10 to 18, are touring the eastern United States this summer, sharing their joy in a variety of venues and churches.
On Sunday, Aug. 18 at 6 p.m., the Boothbay Region Community Fellowship will host the choir for a concert at the American Legion Hall, Industrial Park Drive, Boothbay. There is no fee, but an offering will be taken to help with the choir’s costs as well as to help fund projects in Haiti. CDs and other items will be available as well.
The choir began seven years ago, with a new group of children coming each summer. Their exceptional voices, combined with energetic dancing, effectively communicate a message of hope. Though many of these young people come from very difficult circumstances in their home country of Haiti, they demonstrate a buoyant spirit which finds its source in their genuine faith.
Under the direction of Barb House of Boothbay, the choir has sung at Christian conventions in Haiti, on radio and television stations, at the Liberty Science Center in New Jersey, and at a variety of both indoor and outdoor venues.
All are invited to be a part of their special experience as they travel and share in our country, knowing that it will prove to be a blessing to your.
