The Ashburnham English Song JUNIOR Awards

So we were delighted to hold the very first Junior AESAs at Battle Abbey School on 21 November 2023. You can read a touching account of the evening by Brenda Anson, Trustee and former Secretary HERE.

On 23rd November 2023 Dame Felicity Lott(below centre) and Sebastian Wybrew(far right), both of whom will be on the judging panel for each stage of this year’s competition, gave a memorably inspiring masterclass to four singers and their collaborative pianists. Held in the recital room at the Razumovsky Academy in London, this was a fantastic opportunity for the singers and audience alike, and more such events are planned.
