FARMINGTON — The Hope Haitian Choir, a group of 15 children and five accompanying adults from Haiti, will perform at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 12 at the Farmington Baptist Church.

The group arrived in Boothbay on July 20, ready to share its music in both English and Creole. Members will live with families in the Boothbay region for about a week while they rehearse in preparation for a major concert tour that stretches from Maine to New Jersey.

Barb House directs the choir and has made several trips to Haiti to select and work with the children. Most of the music is original, written by House and singer/songwriter Fabry Murphy.

The purpose of this effort is to afford these youths an opportunity to develop their potential so they can make a positive impact on the world in which they live.

The public will have an opportunity at the concerts to donate to benefit projects in Haiti, such as starting a school this fall and helping to feed the members of the choir.
