World Renown Childrens Choir Visits Augustine Landing
Residents and staff of Holiday Retirement at Augustine Landing were treated to a performance by the world-renown Matsiko World Orphan Choir in October. The choir, sponsored by the International Children’s Network (ICN) was on a global tour and visited the retirement community during a recent trip to Jacksonville.

The Matsiko World Orphan Choir began in 2008 to bring together children from around the world to express their culture through song and dance. This organization provides orphaned children an outlet to travel the world and raises funds for ICN through proceeds generated by the choir and merchandise.
Before the choir left the senior living community, the residents wanted to show the children their appreciation. A group of residents made 21 prayer bracelets out of beads, one for each performer.
“We just loved having the kids perform for us,” said Rebecca Tudor, enrichment coordinator at Augustine Landing. “They had the residents up and moving around, everyone was having a great time from beginning to end.”
The choir will spend the remainder of 2016 touring the U.S. before returning home to rest before the 2017 tour begins next spring.
