A PRIORY Community School student has won a prized position in the National Youth Choir and will perform at the Royal Albert Hall.

Morgan Rooke, aged 15, will now take her place in the senior girls soprano section in April as her first step towards a planned career in classical singing.

The academy pupil competed against hundreds of other young people across the country to achieve the prize.

Her auditions included singing two songs and performing a music sight reading test.

Morgan will be expected to attend residential training events and her first concert will be at the Royal Albert Hall in April.

Morgan said: “I feel very honoured and excited to be able to perform with the choir.

“I am very excited about the prospect of singing at the Royal Albert Hall at Easter.

“I am hoping to become a classic singer in the future and this will help me to develop my voice and performance further.”

Priory is known for attracting and nurturing talent in the area of music and performing arts.

One such recent Priory graduate is Jake Fisher, who has been accepted onto one of the leading performing arts colleges in the world - the Arts Educational College in London.
