Last night, UK High Commissioner to Kenya, Nic Hailey, was among the guests of American Ambassador Bob Godec, who were treated to a festive performance by the Nairobi Chamber Chorus (NCC).
Through his Twitter account, Mr Hailey thanked his American counterpart for the “incredible, uplifting festive singing”.

Founded in 2005 By Ken Wakia, the mission of Nairobi Chamber Chorus was set up to enable young Kenyans to participate in a high quality musical forum from which they can build their careers or expand their realm of knowledge and interest in the arts.
Since its inception, over 70 young people have participated and many are now leading musicians in Kenya, performing and teaching music across the country and beyond.
