The Ugandan Kids Choir has travelled across the world to engage U.S. audiences in their high-energy performance of traditional African songs and dances; their tour brings them to the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center on Saturday afternoon, July 7, for a free public performance at 3:30 p.m. in the planetarium theater.
In the Discovery Center’s planetarium, visitors can see how the night sky appears from
any place in the world. The Center is delighted to offer the opportunity for New
Hampshire residents and visitors to meet young African musicians, who share with us
the wonders of the night sky - but from a very different global position (Earth’s equator
crosses right through Uganda!). The Center will project the Ugandan night sky on its 40-
foot planetarium dome just prior to the performance by the Ugandan Kids Choir.
Visitors to the Discovery Center on July 7 will be able to see the choir perform for free
with paid general admission to the Center. Those just wishing to see the Ugandan Kids
Choir without visiting the Discovery Center’s exhibit galleries may gather in the Center’s
Reception area at 3 p.m. for check-in and an escort to the performance. The
planetarium seats 103; seating is first come, first served.
