The African music speaks to my heart. It conveys messages of hope, world peace and love of mankind. The lyrics are beautiful and so full of energy. It’s music that you can’t help but enjoy.”Half of the program will be religious pieces and the other half traditional folk music of South Africa. Several of the pieces Sexton arranged into four-part harmony.“Some of the songs are protest songs from the South African apartheid era,” Sexton said. “So, this is an opportunity for the audience to experience another culture through its music and to learn about its history. The audience will also be invited to participate in this unique concert. It’s fun and it’s moving and inspiring. Those who come will be glad they did.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Published 7:03 pm Wednesday, June 9, 2010 Skiplast_img
