When Helen's mum, Meena, read about an International singing competition for classical music on the Grand Prize Virtuoso Website, she  thought it would be a terrific experience for her daughter, 14 year old Helen.

It was an exciting day at the Academy when Helen came to be videoed and to record her songs.

Her chosen songs were:

"Voi Che Sapete," by Mozart

"Standchen," by Schubert

"Foxgloves," by Michael Head

We were lucky to have Dave Pinkney, sound technician, on hand to make sure everything ran smoothly. As accompanist our principal, Sue Hartley, was the perfect person to calm any nerves and ensure Helen gave her best performance.

Helen heard, this week, that she had won THIRD PRIZE!


WOW! What an achievement Helen.

You certainly deserve very SPECIAL CONGRATULATIONS from everyone here at the Academy.
