Soprano, Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester

I am deeply grateful to The Cross Trust for its financial aid towards my MMus studies at the Royal Northern College of Music. I have spent some of the happiest, most influential, and life-changing years at this institution and have learned so many essential skills that will help me in my career as a professional musician.

These years of development and training for a young singer are crucial not only physically and musically, but mentally and emotionally, and I sincerely thank The Cross Trust for showing its support when I needed it most.
