It was also a great honour to be invited to perform alongside baritone Roderick Williams and pianist Christopher Glynn in a concert at the Royal Overseas League in the same month. The concert raised funds for the Joyce and Michael Kennedy Strauss Prize which is such a important award providing essential funding for students to continue their vocal studies. Representatives and friends of Royal Northern College of Music and also Joyce Kennedy were present at the evening. We also celebrated the 70th birthday of Andrew Neil who had organised the concert.
The Royal Overseas London Clubhouse backs on to Green Park in London and is a beautiful Grade 1 listed building – It was a stunning venue for an evening of celebrations. With thanks to Andrew and a really enthusiastic audience we concluded the programme by singing a big ‘happy birthday!’
