Children of the World choir performs at Union

Union College welcomes the Children of the World international children's choir on Tuesday, Nov. 7, 10:30 a.m. in the College View Seventh-day Adventist Church.

The choir consists of 15-20 international children, many of them orphaned, who perform with costumes and choreography to raise money for other orphans around the world. The Children of the World have appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and performed at events for presidents and royalty.

"They're just little kids, but they're so expressive and so well trained as a choir," said Rich Carlson, vice president of spiritual life at Union College. "They have such a spirit about them." Carlson invited the choir do a short performance at the college in the midst of other performances in the Lincoln area and invites the community to the inspiring program.

Parking is available in the College View Seventh-day Adventist Church parking lot, located on the corner of South 48th Street and Prescott Avenue. For more information, contact Jacque Smith at 402.486.2538. For more information about the Children of the World choir, visit
