NTU Music hosted a fantastic evening on Friday 13 February 2015, as nine outstanding soloists competed for a cash prize at this year's annual Vocal Competition. The competition was adjudicated by Head of Training at the English National Opera, Jane Robinson.

Students were expected to perform two contrasting pieces of their choice that showed their vocal ability. This was reflected in the evening's programme, which featured pieces from a mixture of musical genres, including traditional Irish Folk, Classical and songs from the musicals. All the competitors delivered quality performances, adding to the already wonderful atmosphere in The Old Chemistry Theatre.

The audience waited patiently as Jane made her deliberations, expressing her delight at the high quality of performances from all the competitors. Before presenting the winners with their awards, Jane kindly talked through each performance, providing students with constructive feedback – particularly stressing the importance of a singer's emotional connection with a song.

First place was awarded to final year Business student, Sam Telford, while final year Fashion Management student, Hannah Locke was awarded second place. Third place went to first year Business student Ciaran Edgeworth.

The event was a great success and NTU Music look forward to next year's competition!
