Accolades

Thank you for the participation of the World Children's Choir at the presentation of the UNICEF State of the World's Children report. Hillary and I truly enjoyed the children's performance. Their wonderful singing added to the feeling of warmth at this memorable event.

Wednesday's Gala was a huge success. . . we have received nothing but raves about it, and the choir had more than a little to do with it. There is nothing more spectacular and moving than children's voices. Please thank them all for us, for their gift of talent, cooperation and flexibility.

Warmest congratulations on the occasion of your benefit concert to aid the children of Central America. I can still hear your angelic voices singing with Whitney Houston at the Children's Defense Fund benefit and I'm sure you will bring the house down once again. I am very proud of you for your spirit and for striving to make the world a better place for all children.

Marian Wright Edelman
Founder of Children's Defense Fund



You're wonderful!

Michael Bolton



I would like to thank you very much for the wonderful performance given by your choir. The performance was quite wonderful, with a lovely variety of classical, traditional, and popular music. The range of songs from different countries, with the theme of peace and understanding, struck a chord with the audience, and the elderly Scottish people particularly appreciated your efforts to master the Scot's language in you moving rendition of Ca the Yowes. However, the high spot had to be the exuberant choreographed medley from Mary Poppins. Even the care workers were singing along, which believe me is quite an achievement.

On behalf of The World Bank, I would like to express my profound appreciation to you and your wonderful choir for your stellar performance at last week's memorial service for Mr. Lewis Preston held at the Lisner Auditorium. You and the children helped to make it an unforgettable event for us and we thank you with all our hearts.

So many thanks for your participation in the Christmas festivities at the White House. Your wonderful music added so much joy to the celebration of this Holiday Season.

It was such a delight to hear the choir's sweet voices, and I particularly appreciated the selections that called for peace and love in this world. All of our guests commented on the beauty of your performance, and truly everyone was reminded that children were really the focus of the evening.

The Benefit Concert for the children of Morolica (Honduras) was absolutely superb... from the tallest to the tiniest, each member of the choir put their heart and soul into giving an outstanding performance. Be assured that the people of Morolica will learn of this fantastic effort, and as soon as they have established the rudimentary requirements, we will send them a copy of your CD, so they can hear for themselves what a splendid ensemble you are

J. Benjamin Zapata
Minister Counselor, Embassy of Honduras



What a great performance!

Jeanette Pilak
Festival Coordinator

The choir displays at all times and unusual ability to master musical intricacies, differences of style and a real sense of varied tone color. This is an important organization in the cultural life of the Northern Virginia community and, obviously, of great educational value to the children who are fortunate enough to participate in its activities.

The World Children's Choir was excellent! The patients, their families and the staff of Children's National Medical Center are pleased that you shared your talents with us during the holiday season. Every year particularly during the holiday season we look for an activity that is educational, uplifting and entertaining for our patients. Your choir was it and it was great.

You guys are really great!

Thank you for making the joint concert possible with our exchange students from Gyumri, Armenia. Although our students spoke very little English, they communicated in the international language of music (at rehearsals and the concert with WCC). The concert was a great success, leaving lasting memories for both the students and audience. I am still receiving compliments on it.

The children's beautiful voices and songs of hope and good will were clearly a high point of the celebration (of the late Jim Grant, Executive Director of UNICEF).
