Earlier this year Amelia Hughes (Soprano) a Grade 7 Student, shortly to do Grade 8 if the ABRSM singing examinations, won the 15 to 18 category at the Abergavenny Eisteddfod. She is a unique talent and very advanced technically, which has already caused waves among the professional people who have heard her.She is a splendid team player, donating her time and energy to helping the Soprano section as we retrain the new choir. Both she, Rhys and Morgan Thomas (tenor) recently taught the sections of the choir they represented in a French song. She is consequently respected by those in the choir. Millie is also a music theatre singer with a high range, and will probably be very sought after for that in the future. sensibly, she is working steadily to learn repertoire and improve. She recently sang the lead in the Croesyceiliog School performance, and also a meticulous actress and can create enormous pathos in her singing expression. A rare talent in a very mature 15 year old. The adjudicator at the Abergavenny Eisteddfod, a well known professional soprano came over to congratulate her (and me!) for her beauty of tone and technical ability. There are a number of excellent sopranos in the choir and I am sure they could not have a better role model than Amelia for sheer hard work, a sunny disposition and attention to detail. Congratulations on your very well deserved reward Amelia.
