Stokesley Rotary hosted another Celebration of Youth Concert in Stokesley Methodist Church on the evening of Saturday, October 21.

The concert was put together by music teachers, Martha Kitching and Anita Aslin, who between them teach saxophone, clarinet, harp and piano, and are in touch with a network of other music teachers who supported the event.

The concert saw students playing piano, harp, guitar, and clarinet with a varied programme of modern and classical music. In all, 14 students, whose ages ranged from primary school to sixth form, took part and delighted the audience with their ability and confidence.

The aim of the concert was to raise funds for ChildLine and Katy Scott from ChildLine began the programme by giving a brief outline of how last year’s donation had been used and spoke about the range of services Childline provides locally.

Stokesley Rotary thanked the young musicians, their teachers and the organisers for providing such a rich and varied programme for the audience to enjoy.
