The Spirit Of Uganda at Annenberg
April 1, 2008, Volume 54, No. 27


Spirit of Uganda

Penn Presents the stirring and inspirational Spirit of Uganda—the public face of Empower African Children—April 3 in the Zellerbach Theatre at the Annenberg Center, at 7:30 p.m. This group of young people, the Spirit of Uganda, is a professional training and touring program that presents riveting performances of music and dance. Their international tours raise visibility for the problems faced by many African children—as well as funds to help them. Under the direction of artistic director Peter Kasule, 22 of Empower African Children’s young performers share the histories, legends and beliefs of East Africa and introduce new, dynamic music and dance forms. In conjunction with this, Penn Presents an Experience It Live! Dinner and Lecture Series in the Center’s lobby, at 5:30 p.m. preceding the performance. There will be a catered buffet dinner with East African fare, and a lecture, The Spirit of Hope: How Africa Fights AIDS by Spirit of Uganda’s Artistic Director Peter Kasule.

For tickets: Go to the Box Office, call (215) 898-3900, or go online at www.pennpresents.org.
