Introducing our new Elliot Rosenblatt Memorial Scholar

Thu 31 October 2019

We are delighted to announce that baritone Theo Perry has been selected as the 2019/20 recipient of the Elliot Rosenblatt Memorial Scholarship. 

Awarded to a postgraduate vocal student who shows exceptional potential, this is the second year the £5,000 scholarship has been presented thanks to the continued support of British lawyer and philanthropist Ian Rosenblatt OBE. Ian has been a longstanding supporter of emerging classical musicians, particularly in the field of opera.

Recipient Theo Perry is in the final year of his Master of Music at Trinity Laban, where he studies with Sophie Grimmer and Helen Yorke. Theo made his operatic debut in December 2018, singing two roles in Thea Musgrave’s A Christmas Carol with Trinity Laban Opera. He has since sung the title role in Don Giovanni with Rogue Opera, touring both the Omnibus Theatre, Clapham, and Hampton Hill Theatre, Surrey, and performed in concert with the Covent Garden Chamber Orchestra. Most recently, Theo covered Brandon (Belcore) in The Elixir of Love at the King’s Head Theatre, Islington, in association with Opera’r Ddraig.

Theo comments –

“I am delighted to have been chosen as the recipient of the Elliot Rosenblatt Memorial Scholarship. It already has, and will continue to, allow me the invaluable opportunity of developing my vocal technique and artistry at Trinity Laban this academic year. It was an honour to meet Ian earlier this term, and I am so grateful for his support.”

Ian Rosenblatt comments –

“My late father Elliot Rosenblatt had a deep love and knowledge of the singing voice and his passion for this art form has been inherited by me. It is a joy to be able to honour his memory by supporting emerging vocal talent. He would love this.”
