A NEW children’s choir is being launched in Rillington next week.

Ryedale Rhythm Rascals will meet for its first rehearsal at Rillington Church Rooms on September 11.

It will be run by music teachers Donna Stockill and Alison Davis, who have years of experience in leading choirs and musical ensembles, instrumental tuition and class music teaching.

The choir will sing in a variety of styles, while introducing children to singing and performing in different languages. There will be opportunities to perform as the choir progresses.

Rehearsals will take place from 5.45pm and 6.30pm and cost £4 per rehearsal. To take part, email Donna and Alison at ryedalerhythmrascals@hotmail.com
