Junior Royal Northern College of Music Prizegiving 2022

Two capital sums bequeathed to the club were donated to the Royal Northern College of Music for investment, with the interest gained to be used annually to bestow a prize to a student.

In the graduate school the prize is the Soroptimist Prize for Composing or Conducting and in the junior school it is the Helen Latto Prize for singing. Helen was President of S I Manchester in 1980-81.

Susan Hollick represented President Sue this year – 

The concert showcased ten very accomplished performances on trumpet, horn, violin, flute, clarinet, piano and voice and the works as varied as Chopin, Samuel Barber, Gabriel Faure and Fritz Kreisler, played and sung by amazing young people between 11 and 16 years old.

Susan presented the Helen Latto prize to soprano Alex Wilkinson – Alex said 

… being awarded the prize truly made my heart sing.
