This weekend saw the annual Ye Cronies Opera Award competition held in the New Athenaeum Theatre at RCS.

Over a dozen vocalists took part in the competition, performing to over 200 audience members and judging panel. After tough deliberations, the judges awarded the prize to baritone Euros Campbell, with soprano Charlie Drummond named as runner up.

Ye Cronies are an organisation which supports and celebrates young, talented singers as they are about to begin their professional careers in what can be a challenging and competitive industry. Ye Cronies have generously supported talent from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland for a number of years and we are extremely grateful for their continued support.

Euros is in good company, with previous winners including Eirlys Myfanwy Davies, Kirstin Sharpin, Catriona Morison and Anush Hovhannisyan. Congratulations to Euros and well done to all the singers who took part in this wonderful afternoon of entertainment.
