A few thoughts and reflections on a fantastic week at the Glyndebourne Academy 2017;
I cannot even put into words how much I gained from this incredible experience. Working so intensively in such a challenging and supportive environment enabled me to learn much more about myself as a performer and as a person. I gained very useful and thoughtful feedback from all the coaches, who I feel so privileged to have met and worked with during the week. I am so proud of what I and all the participants achieved and feel so lucky to have got to know and work with such an amazing group of singers.
I am delighted to announce that I have been offered a place at the Glyndebourne Academy this year.
I will take part in an intensive study week, led by Mary King, exploring new repertoire and developing my performances skills at the renowned Glyndebourne Opera Festival.
