zing haiti – choir
about the project
Project Haiti started the children’s choir Zing Haiti in October 2011. The choir consists of 50 children in the age between 7 and 13 years. Choir practise is every Sunday in the school under the direction of an experienced conductor and two assistants. The name Zing is inspired by the band Zing Experience that has made Project Haiti’s own song. Zing Haiti has three friendship choirs, Notenere in Padova Italy, Privilegium Gospel på Finnsnes and Soul Children in Askim, Norway.
