James Newby

Rising star baritone James Newby, who graduated from Trinity Laban’s BA(Hons) programme this summer, is appearing at the Last Night of the BBC Proms.

James, who earlier this year became the youngest ever winner of the Kathleen Ferrier Awards,  will be appearing as a soloist in Ralph Vaughan Williams’ iconic Serenade to Music.

James Newby studied at Trinity Laban with Alison Wells. He has regularly praised the education he received at Trinity Laban, saying: “as a musician I feel completely unrecognisable from the musician that walked through the door four years ago, and I am just so grateful to everybody at Trinity Laban for everything they have done for me.”

You can catch James’s performance live on BBC television and radio, then subsequently on BBC iPlayer.
