ARS Youth Choir – Ashaiman in collaboration with ARS Mid Greater Accra successfully fashioned out another great concert dubbed “Tehillah Concert” at Ashaiman Senior High School Conference Hall.
The Welcome address read by Mr. Ebenezer Fiador to the audience vividly explained the name TEHILLAH. He said TEHILLAH is a Hebrew word which means Praise, song or hymn of praise, adoration, thanksgiving paid to God and praise demanded by qualities, deeds and attributes of God.”
He further said “ the understanding of this word boosted our enthusiasm to organize this concert to sing and praise the Lord and give Him the ultimate Glory. There is only one choir who can do this best and it is the Ashaiman A.R.S Youth Choir.”
He continued to say that their mission is to champion the course of A.R.S to sing praises and salute the majesty of the Almighty God.
The event which took place on Sunday witnessed a heavy turn out and it was indeed a ‘December to Remember’ when the Ashaiman Youth Choir magnificently showed their readiness to sing praises to God and the entire audience was amazed with their tremendous performance and vigor.
During their second performance, the Choir sang startling folk songs and this was well portrayed in their costume where the females had the same natural hairstyle as it was with our mothers since time immemorial to represent the traditional sense of quality music. The songs performed during this session were Goliath, Pete Pete, Everybody bring your calabash and Tutugborvi.
With much effort and dynamism, they thrilled their fans and audience to soul inspiring repertories.
