“Working together in unity.”

The Festival Singers of Florida are proud to announce that the world-renowned Nairobi Chamber Chorus will tour the Southeastern United States from October 10 to 20, 2015. IMG_0513

In August 2014, twenty members of the Festival Singers of Florida traveled to Kenya to perform with the Nairobi Chamber Chorus. They welcomed us with extraordinary hospitality. Their energy and inner joy absolutely filled our hearts. From that experience the dream of this tour began. That dream is now fulfilled. IMG_3299

The Nairobi Chamber Chorus was founded in 2005 with the mission of enabling young Kenyans to participate in a high quality musical forum from which to build careers and expand knowledge of the arts. Since its inception, more than 70 young people have sung with the chorus and many are now leading musicians in Kenya and beyond. Members are drawn from universities and institutions in Nairobi and, just like the Festival Singers, they donate their time and resources to meet and make music.


The choir has performed for President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, Her Majesty the Queen of England, and in July of this year for President Barack Obama during his State visit to Kenya.IMG_0269

However, an endeavor of this scope is not inexpensive. We could not have achieved this dream without the support of partners such as the University of Mississippi, Florida State University, Troy University, the American Choral Directors Association, several churches and private individuals. It is our
sincere hope that you will support the tour, by clicking on support & sing at the top right and then the Donate link where you can make a tax-deductible contribution using a credit card, or with PayPal.

We are proud and honored to bring them to you and we hope that you’ll be able to attend one of their concerts listed below on the tour poster.

NCC Details


The Festival Singers of Florida is a highly select, annually-auditioned choral ensemble consisting of women and men from throughout Florida and the Southeast. Our mission is to present choral music at the highest level of excellence and to provide an artistic outlet and promote musical growth for outstanding singers in the region. The Festival Singers of Florida is dedicated to expanding the awareness and appreciation of ensemble singing and the choral arts by providing community performances of the highest quality.

Most members of the The Festival Singers of Florida are music teachers. And most of them teach elementary, middle, and high school choirs, while a few are college choral directors. Others are private voice professors, opera company members, and various other musical professionals. These dedicated singers learn music on their own and gather a few weekends a year to rehearse and perform. Members are not paid, and some drive as much as a thousand miles round-trip, for the opportunity to sing with the Festival Singers. It’s the potential to create music with  people who share the same passion that generates the electric feeling our audiences enjoy.
