Born from a heart for every forgotten child in the unreached corners of the world, the International Children's Network (ICN) began it's choir program in 2008 with the first US tour of the Matsiko Children's Choir. This choir was the first step toward bringing children together from the various countries in which ICN provides sponsorship. After the choir's resounding success, the Matsiko World Orphan Choir was created in 2012 with children from Peru and Liberia, who shared their lives and culture through song and dance, and connected their hearts with audiences across the United States. In 2014, children from India were granted permission to travel with Matsiko, and in 2017, Nepal children joined. The choir continues annually with new children auditioning and performing every year. Other children from partnering nations will be added, so be on the lookout!
