Sierra Leone blind choir

Tour organiser Peter Penfold CMG, OBE, the former UK High Commissioner to Sierra Leone, said: “Our aims are to provide a memorable and life-changing experience for these courageous African children, continued support for the running of this remarkable school, and an opportunity for audiences in the UK to see and hear the talents of these gifted young people.”

Mr Penfold said: “They are known throughout Africa from their performances on BBC’s World Service. And certainly they are regarded in Sierra Leone and West Africa as one of the finest choirs around.”
The choir’s repertoire includes indigenous songs, church music and popular music. They performed for Prince Charles during his recent visit to the country.
