Matsiko's back in town!

The Matsiko Children’s Choir, a group of adorable children who sing like rock stars, will be visiting the Monterey Peninsula from Sep 30 through Oct 3.

The Matsiko Orphans Choir was started in 2008 by the International Children's Network (ICN), and is comprised of at-risk children from Peru, India, and Liberia. The children tour the United States for one year, and return home to inspire their communities.

The children serve as ambassadors of their nations and share their lives and culture through song and dance. The performances often include cultural dances, dramatic performances, and drum routines. Proceeds generated by the choir's tour and merchandise sales go directly to support ICN's worldwide programs.

Matsiko will have a community performance at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 3, at the Marina Community Center, 211 Hillcrest Ave., Marina. For more information, click here.
