NULS Music department is delighted that Sixth Form student Eleanor Burnham has been accepted onto the first of this year's Eton Choral Courses, now managed by the Rodolfus Foundation. As well as receiving choral training from eminent specialists, Eleanor will sing Evensong in King's College, Cambridge and in St George's Chapel, Windsor and participate in a recital in Eton College Chapel.
Many in the School community will have enjoyed Eleanor's performances including a recent choral solo in the Carols by Candlelight service and, combining her theatrical skills with her singing, in Sweeney Todd and Me and My Girl. Eleanor has always enjoyed both the technical and performance aspects of her music studies. She says, "The broad and challenging programme we cover in Senior Choir, as well as the other extra-curricular activities offered at School such as yearly musical theatre productions, singing lessons and opportunities for solo performances in concerts and School services, have been a great asset to me in applying for the Eton Choral Course. This course, quite apart from the prestige of being offered a place on it, is well-established as a stepping stone toward Choral Awards at the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. I am excited to sing with world-class professionals and develop my knowledge of traditional Anglican choral repertoire."
We all looking forward to hearing more!
