Wokoma Happy With Growth Of Choral Music In Rivers


Renowned choral and
classical music legend in Port Harcourt, Alabo Dr. C.I.T. Wokoma, has expressed his happiness in the development of choral and classical music in Rivers State.
The music director who spoke with The Tide Entertainment recently noted that during his younger days, they had only very few choral groups, but today there are up to 150 groups in the state which shows that people are now embracing choral groups more than other genres of music.
Alabo Wokoma who has trained many music directors and instructors gave kudos to the Rivers State Broadcasting Corporation (RSBC) for promoting the development of choral music in Rivers State through her annual choral music festivals. He urged other corporate organizations to emulate the corporation in praising God through music.
It would be recalled that the Radio Rivers 2 FM Easter Choral Festival was conceived by RSBC in 20014 as an outdoor social service to the general public. More importantly, the programme was initiated to create a non denominational platform for the exaltation of God through music  and to bring the general public to a place of relaxation during the Easter season. The maiden edition in 2004 featured 22 choirs, it was a splendid and memorable experience.
