On Sunday the 14th of September, I competed in the final of the MOCSA Young Welsh Singer of the Year Competition. I'm absolutely delighted to have been named the winner of this year's First Prize, trophy and scholarship which will be invaluable in the final year of my studies at the Royal Academy of Music. More information about the competition and previous winners can be found here.
Summer 2015 is shaping up to be a busy one. I will be covering the rôle of Anna in Strauss' Intermezzo at Garsington Opera as well as singing the rôle of Lace Seller in their production Britten's Death in Venice which will be directed by Paul Curran and conducted by Steuart Bedford (who conducted the world première). Oh, and I'll also be getting married!!!
My final year at the Royal Academy of Music approaches. At this time I would like to acknowledge the incredible generosity of the following individual and organisations who are making this year possible. Entering my eighth year of full time study is incredibly exciting, but it would be impossible without financial help with towards my fees and maintenance.
