Spirit of Uganda in Pasadena Jan. 27

Spirit of Uganda will perform on Friday, January 27, at 8 p.m. in Caltech’s Beckman Auditorium.

Under the direction of Peter Kasule, Spirit of Uganda features 22 performers, ages 8 to 18, sharing the histories, legends and beliefs of East Africa and introducing some of the new and dynamic music and dance forms being created.

Ambassadors for Uganda’s 2.4 million orphans, these children personify the resilience and promise of Africa’s next generation as they promote awareness of Uganda’s dual crises of AIDS and civil war, and raise funds to support themselves and others in their homeland.

Tickets to this performance are priced at $26.00, $21.00, and $16.00; youth (high school age and younger): $10.00. Senior rush tickets will go on sale for $10.00, beginning one-half hour before the performance (subject to availability). Tickets can be purchased at the Caltech Ticket Office, 332 S. Michigan Ave., Pasadena.

Parking for Beckman Auditorium is located at 332 S. Michigan Ave., Pasadena (south of Del Mar Boulevard). For further information, call the Caltech Ticket Office at (626) 395-4652.
