Hampshire Singing Competition

The finals of the Hampshire Singing Competition took place in Winchester on Monday, 28 October with 17 young singers under 30 competing. In a strong field, first prize went to soprano Sarah-Jane Lewis who won £6,000 and the opportunity to sing with Southern Sinfonia. (We recently saw Lewis in lovely performances of arias from Carmen and Cavalleria Rusticana at a gala for Amazwi Omzansi Africa / Voices of South Africa Project).  

Second prize went to baritone Duncan Rock who won £3,000 and the opportunity to sing with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and the Grange Park Opera Aria Prize went to soprano Susanna Hurrell. Tenor Richard Dowling won the song prize with a performance of Britten's Canticle no. 1
