Last season we invited four exceptional postgraduate students from the Royal Northern College of Music to showcase their vocal talents in operatic repertoire, and they attracted a large and enthusiastic audience.

Once again, we present the very best talent from an impressive group of students at the RNCM. Olivia, Georgia Mae, Philip, Peter and pianist Chris have all appeared in recent College productions and have worked with Opera North, Glyndebourne and the BBC Proms.

We can keenly anticipate a fun, varied concert of operatic repertoire performed to a very high standard.
