Singing with the ICC is an invaluable opportunity for any young singer; a chance to learn a wide range of challenging repertoire with a lovely group of people and an inspiring conductor, all for free! I really progressed as a singer during my year with the choir, especially thanks to the solo opportunities I was given, such as being one of the soprano soloists in the Monteverdi Vespers, alongside professional soloists!
