Sophie Akka Gains Place at Royal Northern College of Music

Year 10 student, Sophie Akka, has gained a place at the prestigious Royal Northern Collage of Music. After being invited to audition Sophie was thrilled to be awarded a place to start immediately studying voice, violin and piano.

Sophie was accepted to the U18 department of the College and her principle study will be voice. Following her audition, the College expressed she has an “unusual potential for musical drama singing”, and have allocated her a tutor who is a specialist in musical voice, as well as traditional/classical voice. While there, she will also be studying conducting, composition and perform with the college’s official choir, as well as performing vocal and violin solos at the various concerts open to the public.

Sophie was also recently awarded, along with a significant number of other Grange pupils, places in the Hallé Youth Choir and the Hallé Youth Orchestra, both of which she has now joined, starting with a performance of “Dream of Gerontius” at York Minster on November 4th.
