Charleston families participate in Kindermusik

Published 11:07am Friday, August 3, 2012
Diane McCall and her husband brought their 4-year-old granddaughter, Ella (shown at right with her father), to Tryon so that she could learn music and art skills and interact with children her own age. Rainsford said that coming so far for Kindermusik was absolutely worth it. She said, “Bryant Belin has a great energy and the kids wake up looking forward to Kindermusik every morning.” Ella, Benjamin and their families said they have become friends and are even planning a play-date when they get home to Charleston. Fall Saturday Kindermusik classes will start on Sept. 8 and will run through November. (article and photos submitted by Alli Halbkat)
