Isabel Jay Trophy

The Isabel Jay Trophy Award November 2018

There were to have been three in the class...but two withdrew leaving last year's winner, Jemima Byrne, as the only entrant. She was awarded the cup and quite rightly so. She gave a sparkling performance of "Kind Sir, you cannot have the heart" from Gondoliers. She has a lovely voice, perfectly in tune, clear diction, acted it beautifully and produced an effortless top D at the end.

The adjudicator Kenneth Hytch spoke of his love for G&S. He has recently played Jack Point and will be in the chorus for Mikado next Spring.
