MOIPEI – SING SING SING!
July 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
This concert was commissioned by the Kennedy Center to close their 2023 RiverRun Festival and performed to standing ovations in this past April. Mary, Maggy, and Marta Moipei of Nairobi, Kenya, sing an eclectic mix of styles illustrating how rivers impact our lives with their beauty, their majesty, and their power. This lively concert runs the gamut of the American Songbook, Broadway, pop, spirituals, swing and even a spotlight on Kenyan folk songs. The concert includes favorite songs: Ol’ Man River, Down by the Riverside, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Up a Lazy River, Down to the River to Pray, Proud Mary, The Water is Wide, and many, many more.
Mary, Maggy and Marta have been singing since a very young age in Kenya. Their arrival in NY a couple of years ago has been met with high praise from critics, fellow performers, musicians and most importantly, audiences.
Mary, Maggy and Marta Moipei are identical triplets from Nairobi, Kenya and currently reside in the U.S. Moipei made their NYC debut at the 2021 Cabaret Convention which resulted in the Foundation presenting them with the prestigious Julie Wilson Award. MOIPEI arranges their unique vocals for all the songs they sing.
At the age of 12, they were appointed Kenya’s first ever UNICEF Child Ambassadors. Through their musical talents they championed girl child empowerment, education, and alternative rites of passage. The sisters have performed sold-out concerts internationally, presenting an eclectic mix of their own arrangements of the American Songbook repertoire, Broadway tunes, jazz hits, sacred pieces, and Kenyan folk songs.
Other highlights: performances with the Indianapolis Symphony, The San Antonio Symphony, The Alamo City Opera Company, The Amarillo Opera Company, and tours of South Korea and British Columbia. They have also performed at Birdland Jazz Club Theater and many performing arts centers throughout the country, as well as singing the national anthem at the Spurs vs. Clippers – Playoff game 4.
