Making a decision as to who was to receive the award in this inaugural year (the award has been launched in celebration of our 10th anniversary) was difficult, as the standard of students in the last academic year has been higher than ever, and many were considered potential worthy winners. Eventually we whittled it down to three names, and after much deliberation, settled on James as the very best of a very fine field! The other two students who made it to our top three were Britt Packer (Worcester, UK) and Celeste Khanna (Dubai) who both did exemplary work in the Diploma in Contemporary Vocal Teaching.
Many congratulations to James!
