Hello! We’re delighted to be showcasing here our extraordinary Performers and Musical Direction graduates of 2021. For the first time ever, we are graduating two cohorts simultaneously and the individuals who make up these cohorts are truly exemplary.
For those who started their MA programme in 2019, they had only completed their first two terms in person with us, before the pandemic hit and they were catapulted into online living and learning. Having made the decision to defer their final performance term, every one of them came back the following year to complete the programme. The energy and joy with which they jumped back into the rehearsal room – almost as though they had never been away – was inspiring and uplifting for us all.
For those who started in 2020; it was an extraordinary leap of faith to begin a one-year programme with us in such uncertain times. They each of them navigated with such grace the constantly changing environments within which they had to work and to see the two cohorts come together for their final, live productions of URINETOWN, COMPANY and PIPPIN was truly humbling.
I do hope that you will now take the time to view and celebrate the work of these most wonderful human beings. Never has a graduating year been so deserving of your/our support.
