WOZO’s First Day in Holland, Michigan
September 9, 2011
We arrived on Amtrak train coming from Chicago–a 3-hour trip–to be greeted by dozens of friends from Calvary Church complete with balloons and signs. It was a wonderful welcome and the choir kids looked out from the train identifying all the faces of youth and adults who had visited them in Haiti.
Children at Calvary Schools of Holland were WOZO’s very first audience in the US. And what a wonderful audience they were! WOZO performed at the elementary school and then at the secondary school. The kids, teachers and administrators at Calvary Holland Schools welcomed WOZO with warmth and enthusiasm. Clips from both performances are in video below. Video below also includes clips from leaving our neighborhood in Haiti to all along the way in getting to Holland.
What a wonderful experience we’re all having. WOZO choir members are staying with host families from Calvary Church. The welcome is extraordinary. What a wonderful experience this is and WOZO choir kids are having a blast. Thank you to all who are making this possible, especially Calvary Church.
