The Leonard Ingrams Awards were launched in 2006 to honour the memory of the founder of Garsington Opera. Winners of this year's awards are Bradley Travis and Llio Evans. Travis sang a number of roles in this year's production of Britten's Death in Venice at Garsington (see my review) whilst Llio Evans understudied the role of Despina in this year's production of Cosi fan Tutte.

Bradley Travis commented: 'This award has come at absolutely the right time in my career and amongst other things, will enable me to do an intensive course at the Goethe Institute, invest in a number of scores, have specialist coaching in modern music and continue my regular singing lessons.'

Two other young singers received smaller awards, with Oliver Johnson receiving the Helen Clarke Award and Daniel Rudge the Simon Sandbach Award.
