The concert continues the University’s observance of Black History Month and will begin at 7 p.m. in Moss Auditorium in the W.V. Middleton Fine Arts Center.

The choir – comprised of 22 children ages 8 to 16 – will perform traditional Ugandan drum songs as well as songs in the Lugandan and English languages.

The Ugandan Thunder Children’s Choir is an outreach of the humanitarian and mission organization Pennies for Posho, which is committed to feeding the hungry children of Africa while sharing the Gospel with them and teaching the children discipline. It was founded in 2007 by Dr. Ted Moody, a Georgia pastor who began the ministry after seeing the children’s plight first-hand while on a mission trip to Uganda. When he returned home, Moody asked fellow pastors to donate their church’s vacation Bible school collections to help feed the children. Thus, Pennies for Posho was born.

Since its founding, Pennies for Posho has been instrumental in building new orphanages and dormitories, a chicken house and a medical clinic, as well as digging new wells and repairing old ones.

Each year, the Ugandan Thunder Children’s Choir tours the Southeastern United States. While the concert is free and open to the public, a love offering is collected to help the orphanages in Uganda.
