Ferrier Bursary Success
RCM countertenor Timothy Morgan has triumphed in this year’s Kathleen Ferrier Society Bursary for Young Singers.
To achieve First Prize and the award of £3,000 over three years, Timothy sang ‘Dove Sei’ from Rodelinda, ‘Der Lindenbaum’ from Winterreise and Tippett’s Songs for Ariel in the first round, followed with songs by Handel, Schubert and Howells in the second round.
The Kathleen Ferrier Society Bursary for Young Singers was established in 1996 and is open to vocal students aged between 19 and 24 just beginning their second year of study at each of the major Music Colleges in England, Scotland and Wales. Each college sends two singers to present a varied programme of 18 minutes.
Former winners of the Bursary’s First Prize include RCM alumni Clint van der Linde, Simona Mihai, Sophie Bevan, Oliver Clarke, Sarah-Jane Lewis and last year’s winner, James Wafer.
