Ding Dong Merrily

Youth Choir


We are very pleased you are joining us as a member of our youth choir, making music to celebrate Christmas in the wonderful setting of the National Centre for Early Music on Tuesday December 4th, 2012. Our concert, Ding Dong Merrily, has previously been performed at this venue in front of sell-out audiences and we certainly hope this will again be the case in 2012.

Ding Dong Merrily is an evening of carols, readings and festive cheer and will include some carols which the audience will join in with; some musical numbers performed by our adult singers; some musical numbers performed by our youth singers and a small number of solos. There will also be some festive readings. We are certain it will include some of your favourite Christmas music and some new music you haven’t heard before. It is an evening not to be missed!

We have been invited to perform Ding Dong Merrily on Tuesday December 18th at The Galtres Centre, Easingwold. A decision on whether we will perform at Easingwold will be made shortly.


Tickets are on-sale now at the National Centre for Early Music box office 01904 658338 or follow the link to http://www.ncem.co.uk to buy tickets on-line.

Rehearsals, led by Mrs Jessa Liversidge, will take place at New Earswick Primary School each Monday evening at 6.30pm – 7.30pm. Whilst we are preparing for a performance in a very special venue we also hope rehearsals will be a fun experience for all of our young members.
