Round Hill Youth Choir rehearsals begin Feb. 20

Is your child interested in singing in a youth choir? The Round Hill Community Church has recently formed a choir targeted towards younger children in third to eighth grades.

The choir will be directed by the church’s Music Director, Eugene Sirotkine, who is also the conductor and musical director of the Hudson Valley Singers and the New York Metamorphoses Orchestra. From 1999 through 2008, Mr. Sirotkine served as assistant conductor and assistant chorus master with the New York Metropolitan Opera. He has conducted choruses and orchestras throughout the world, from the Kennedy Center Orchestra in Washington, D.C., to the Hong Kong Philharmonic.

“There is no such thing as a non-musical child,” says Mr. Sirotkine. “Our Youth Choir members will be exploring rhythm and musical grammar, as well as learning songs. When children invent their own rhymes and melodies, they also build up their knowledge of words and sounds, as well as connections in the brain. All music matters, whether it is created or simply heard.”

The youth choir rehearsals will be held on Thursdays from 6 to 6:45 p.m. beginning Feb. 20 at Round Hill Community Church, located at 395 Round Hill Road.
