Children from around the world participating in a six-week performing arts summer camp in St. Paul, Songs of Hope, will perform in concert 2 p.m. Sunday July 22 at the Zumbrota State Theatre.
The Zumbrota Area Arts Council is sponsoring the performance.
Join 55 young performers from 18 countries on five continents as they sing, dance and entertain with a program of songs ranging from rock to reggae, from Chinese traditional to Korean pop, from a jaw-dropping Bollywood extravaganza to a funky Turkish song of unrequited puppy love.
This show is for all ages.
More than just a performing arts camp, the nonprofit Songs of Hope offers participants the opportunity to live in community with kids from other cultures while learning and performing music from many countries.
Each summer, children and adults venture to Minnesota from Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, and the U.S. They learn popular songs and dances from each other’s cultures while becoming friends.
They take these songs of peace, love, and respect into neighboring communities in a joyous celebration of cultural unity, delighting their audiences along the way.
Songs of Hope has been chosen for recognition as a 2011 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award finalist by the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities and its partner agencies, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
