Year 12 student performs at Christmas Concert Royal Albert Hall

An A Level student at Royal High School Bath recently performed with the National Youth Choir of Great Britain at the Royal Albert Hall. Lily, currently in Year 12, is a talented singer and was successfully accepted into the prestigious choir at the age of 11.

Lily performed with the choir as part of their annual Christmas Concert, accompanied by a full symphony orchestra. She will also be singing at the Royal Albert Hall in April 2023 as part of the 40th anniversary celebrations of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain.

Lily auditioned for, and was accepted into, the National Youth Girls’ Choir when she was eleven years old, having previously sung with the Melody Makers at Bath Abbey since the age of seven. The choir has enabled her to meet new people and to perform in numerous concert venues across the UK as well as being tutored by renowned vocal coaches.

Lily is studying music and is a Music Scholar at Royal High School Bath. She said: “Studying music and being a Music Scholar at Royal High School Bath has assisted my development as a musician, with the help of Mr Bradbury, Head of Music, and other music staff. With the excellent facilities at the Music School, I have been able to fully immerse myself in my A-level studies and use the recording studio and high-level technology that the school offers. I have also been able to explore my talent through the opportunities that the school has offered, performing in school concerts and choirs, which has improved my confidence not only as a performer but also as a person.”

Mr Bradbury, Head of Music at Royal High School Bath, said: “It is not an easy task to receive a place in the National Youth Choir of Great Britain and so we’re all incredibly proud of Lily and everything that she has achieved. It has been wonderful over the years to see her grow and to help her develop her special talent.”
