Since June 1996 the African Chorus has held annual workshops and events across the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa, and brought instructors from Uganda, Liberia, Kenya, the Congos, Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Guinea, Gambia, Namibia, South Africa, Egypt, and other parts of Africa. Each event attracts its own following to the African Chorus Project. More choral directors in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia are now programming African music with increased confidence. More sheet music is being engraved and made available to the public. New social bridges are being developed across racial, ethnic and religious lines. This season will be no less. At each workshop participants rehearse several times daily under the expert leadership of a renowned African choral director. Emphasis is on choral music, but there’s also some instruction on instrumental accompaniment, choreography, dance, gesturing, and other performance practices. At the end of each workshop participants give a concert or 2, or even more, depending on the volume of repertoire mastered. New friendships and bonds are formed. There’s usually a large selection of sheet music to purchase and to build a repertoire of African choral music.
