The Asante Children’s Choir from Uganda performed a number of concerts throughout the week in Thunder Bay. In addition to the concerts, the students visited schools to learn about Canadian schools and the students who attend them!

On Tuesday, January 27, the Asante Children’s Choir visited St. James Public School to participate in a Large Drum lesson with the Biwaaseaa Program and the Grade 4/5 class. Afterwards they shared a snack and spent another 45 minutes with the after school program kids learning about hand drumming.
