CONGRATULATIONS TO LILY LOCKE

LILY LOCKE GOT A VERY WELL DESERVED DISTINCTION FOR HER GRADE 8 SINGING EXAM!! HURRAY!!!! I am very proud to have been her teacher.

Lily is the latest UTM pupil to reach the great heights of Grade 8 singing. She was singing a lovely wide ranging programme which includes Green Finch and Linnet Bird from Sweeney Todd, Du Bist Die Ruh and unaccompanied Lagan Love folk song. This is the culmination of a real commited few years of work from Lily with the support of her family who have shared the driving from South Warwickshire to the lessons. This brings to an end her singing lessons for the moment, as she is moving onto focus on Grade 8 piano for the Springtime and then her A-Levels.

Lily has performed with UMCM many times and has been a great team member in our projects. Most memorable are the performances in the comedically competitive "Divas", who desperately tried to outstrip one another initially for the extent of their vocal decorations in Baroque songs. They then went on to scrap about who would get the rather handsome young man who was cleaning the stage and finally they blatantly competed to sing the most distressing song and suffer from the most weeping and wailing.

Also memorable was Lily' serious performance in UMCM's very well received Baroque Concert in All Souls church where her high notes resonated into the huge acoustic of this magnificent building.
