The Saskatoon Children's Choir embarked on a trip of a lifetime in July 2011. The 42 girls in the choir journeyed to South Africa for a concert and humanitarian tour. Along the way, they saw the reality of life in the Soweto township, met witnesses of the country's apartheid regime, and interacted with children who have been orphaned as a result of the country's HIV/AIDS pandemic. They also enjoyed an African safari, performed with many other choirs, and visited a penguin colony near Cape Town. I'm Shauna Powers from CBC Radio in Saskatchewan. I was with the choir every step of the way, along with a small CBC/Radio-Canada production crew. We recorded their concerts, documented their life changing journey, and are delighted to be sharing their stories with you!
