I was fortunate to be studying at Trinity Laban when the Greenwich site first opened and took part in the celebrations and service at Westminster Abbey. Singing the solos in Haydn’s Nelson Mass under Sir Charles Mackerras and having Emma Kirkby as a mentor were also incredible inspiring opportunities.Ildikó Allen
