Who We Are

The Winneba Youth Choir, known to be the number one choral music group in the country was founded in May 1989, under the patronage of Mr. George Mensah-Essilfie and Mr. John Francis Arthur-Yamoah (Paa John).

The choir has progressed steadily to the extent that it is now recognized as the most outstanding youth choir of the nation.

In March 1998 the choir was incorporated and regist¬ered as a non-profit making association, with the objective of providing a platform for the education and development of the youth in Winneba and surrounding towns through the medium of singing. It is an inter-denominational.

Members of the choir are between the ages of 10 and 22 and are made up of Primary, Junior, and Senior High School students.

The choir remains under the of Paa John, who started conducting choirs from the tender age of 8 years when his musical talent was discovered.

He is currently studying for his music diploma at the music academy of the University College of Education, Winneba.
