Emma’s Story

The grants enabled me to study opera at the Royal Northern College of Music…

..in a complete career change from my previous life as a PA!

18 months out of college I am a professional singer and have worked with Opera North and Scottish Opera.

I recently performed the role of Susanna in Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro for the Richmondshire Subscription Concert Series.

Without the Trust’s help I would not have been able to undertake the years of study I needed to gain my Diploma and would not have had access to the opportunities which have led to my new career.
